Vasundhara (Vasu) Gaur is an Economic Fellow for Energy and Environmental Justice at the Institute for Policy Integrity at New York University School of Law.
She has a background and strong research interests in Environmental Economics, particularly policy-relevant analysis and non-market valuation. Much of her research has been focused on quantifying externalities from solar arrays and wind turbines in the New England area using both revealed preference (hedonic property price analyses) and stated preference methods. At Policy Integrity, she will be working on energy and environmental justice issues in the EPA Region 2 geographic area encompassing New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and eight Indian Nations.
Before joining Policy Integrity, Vasu was a postdoctoral researcher in the Wildlife and Conservation Economics Lab (WCEL) at the University of British Columbia in Canada. She received her PhD in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics from the University of Rhode Island, and her master's in the same field from The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) School of Advanced Sciences in India.
