Endowed Chair in Socio-Economics

The endowed chair in Socio-Economics seeks to make connections between the natural environment and human well-being that will translate into better decision-making regarding the Gulf of Mexico’s natural assets and the issue of conservation and sustainable growth.

In his research, Yoskowitz seeks ways to reverse the degradation of ecosystem services while meeting the needs of a growing population. He places special emphasis on inventorying, mapping, and valuing ecosystem services, as well as the economic impacts of climate change.
