Research Areas

Dr. Lang’s main research examines the value that people place on environmental amenities. Using data from the housing market, he examines the location choices that households make and the prices they are willing to pay to enjoy (or avoid) certain amenities. Additionally, Dr. Lang has research interests in spatial economics, energy, and climate change, and he frequently employs econometrics and GIS in his research.
