Personal profile


Dr. Brooks Kaiser is a Professor at the University of Southern Denmark. Her specializations are in Environmental and Resource Economics and Economic History. Since receiving her PhD in economics from Northwestern University in 1998, she has held tenured positions at Gettysburg College (USA) and the University of Southern Denmark (DK), as well as visiting positions at the Institute for Oceans and Fisheries at the University of British Columbia and the University of Hawaii (UH) Water Resources Research Center, UH Economic Research Organization, and UH Department of Economics. Her long run research agenda investigates connections between economic and ecological transformations of natural capital over the short, long, and very long runs. Current examples include marine invasive species in Arctic waters and long run transformations of socio-ecological systems in Hawaiian and Arctic communities. These transformations show how changes in e.g. trade and technology affect marine resource harvest, use, and conservation. The changes include diversification of marine resource use into tourism, and ecological changes such as ocean acidification and invasive species. She is also a fellow of the Polar Research and Policy Initiative (UK).
