BA, Mathematical Economics, Temple University
Advisor: Austin Troy Email: Brad.Lanute@uvm.edu
Brad works as a research assistant on professor Austin Troy's land use and transportation in Chittenden County project, while pursuing a Master’s in Natural Resources from the Rubenstein School and the Certificate of Graduate Study in Ecological Economics from the Gund Institute. He graduated from Temple University in 2009 with a BA in mathematical economics and a minor in political science. While at Temple, Brad became really interested in economic modeling, computational modeling and complex systems. He was also exposed to ecological economics while there, and has been attracted to the field ever since. Following graduation from Temple, he spent an academic year at the University of Tampere in Finland on a Fulbright grant. The year was spent learning qualitative aspects of environmental policy and political economy. Brad studied the feasibility of an international market for tradable permits designed to ease eutrophication in the Baltic Sea. This project was two-fold focusing partly on the political feasibility of such an international effort as well on the bio-physical feasibility of meeting environmental objectives through such a system.
