Professor BenDor’s research and teaching focus on improving the understanding of the impacts human activities and development can have on sensitive ecological and environmental systems. His research uses qualitative and quantitative methods 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 head of the land use and environmental planning specialization in the MCRP program, and the director of the Odum Institute for Research in Social Science.
