On this episode of the Forum, our host Shivani Shukla is joined by Eyal Frank, Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago’s Harris School of Public Policy. Professor Frank works at the intersection of Economics and Ecology, with a focus on understanding costs of conservation policies, impact of market dynamics on wildlife levels, and how animals fit into human economic systems. Together, they discuss Eyal’s interdisciplinary research with earth’s nonhuman co-habitants as protagonists, the ecological emergencies surrounding us, and potential policy solutions to these crises.
