Her research focuses on solutions to environmental problems in a globalized world. As such, her work incorporates insights from international trade into environmental economics. Moreover, she conducts research into the sustainable management of renewable resources, such as fish stocks and forests. Since renewable resources are not always privately owned but are often managed collectively, she also explores possible mechanisms and institutions for improving collaboration amongst resource users. At the moment, Prof. Eisenbarth is also working on the UKRI-funded NetZeroPlus project, which analyses how to design afforestation in the UK to sequester greenhouse gases, protect biodiversity and deliver other co-benefits.
Prof. Eisenbarth’s work combines economic theory with empirical data analysis using micro-econometric methods, randomized control trials and lab experiments.
