    Professor BenDor's research and teaching focus on producing better ways to understand the impacts that human activities and development can have on sensitive ecological and environmental systems. His research uses both qualitative and quantitative techniques to explore 1) improvements in environmental policy, particularly environmental markets, such as those used domestically to elevate water quality and protect and restore wetlands, 2) better and easier to use models of urban growth and change, and 3) improvements in environmental conflict resolution techniques. Dr. BenDor is also the Director of Carolina Planning's Ph.D. Program and head of the land use and environmental planning specialization in the MCRP program.

    Research, teaching, and practice

    I am on sabbatical at University College - London during the Fall 2016 semester.

    I am the head of the land use and environmental planning specialization in the Department of City and Regional Planning.  My research aims to better understand the impacts that human activities and development can have on sensitive ecological and environmental systems.  In 2009, I was a GlaxoSmithKline Faculty Fellow at the North Carolina State University Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI).  During the 2011-2012 academic year, I was on sabbatical at the University of Paris I (Pantheon-Sorbonne) and at the MIT Department of Urban Studies and Planning.  In 2012, I became the 3rd Frederick J. Clarke Fellow at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Institute for Water Resources (IWR), which is meant to involve and attract external faculty in the Corps' work on improving water resources across the United States.
