Dr. Stephanie Shwiff is the project leader of the NWRC’s Economic Research of Human Wildlife Conflicts project. Her main research interests, publications and presentations involve the estimation of the economic impacts of invasive species and wildlife transmitted diseases. Other research includes determining the economic impact of wildlife damage management actions, determining value of natural resources, examining the economic efficiency of WS activities, and valuing wildlife caused damage, with an emphasis on the use of benefit-cost analysis and econometrics. She also holds affiliate faculty status at Colorado State University and Texas A&M University - Commerce.
