Sam Evans

  • Sam Evans is a postdoctoral fellow with the Energy Biosciences Institute at UC, Berkeley. Sam received his Ph.D. in Agricultural and Resource Economics from Colorado State University and was a fellow in CSU’s IGERT program, Multidisciplinary Approaches to Sustainable Bioenergy (MASB). His current research interests are on the relationship between agricultural production/policy and the environment. Sam’s current work focuses on ways to improve the use of global CGE models for bioenergy analysis with an emphasis on incorporating advanced bioenergy pathways and regional land-use policies. He is also interested in new methodological approaches for incorporating uncertainty in CGE analysis. Sam has also recently worked on several projects looking at the intersection of bioenergy feedstock production incentives and regional environmental outcomes, focusing in particular on biodiversity and greenhouse gas emissions.
