Research Fellow

University of Illinois

Tatyana Deryugina’s research focuses on the effect of the environment on economic outcomes and on health.

Her work includes evaluating the impacts of Hurricane Katrina on the long-run labor market outcomes and survival of residents of New Orleans; estimating the social costs of acute air pollution exposure, both in terms of medical spending and life years lost; and assessing the effect of temperature in the U.S. economy. She has also investigated how farmers adjust their crop insurance choices in anticipation of disaster assistance, how scientific opinions affect laypersons’ beliefs about climate change, and how building energy codes and electricity prices affect energy consumption.
