Dr. Tang’s primary research focuses on the non-market valuation of ecosystem services and natural resources using both revealed preference and stated preference approaches. Tang’s doctoral studies investigate the implicit costs of degraded water quality due to mercury pollution in the State of New York, and the studies also examine the impacts of public land designations on New York residential property values. Tang is currently the lead researcher on a study exploring the economic benefits of nitrogen reduction in drinking water and Iowa water bodies. Additionally, Tang is serving as PI and co-PI in two funded studies focusing on the economic impacts of Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) in Iowa and Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) in New York, respectively. Beyond those, Tang has engaged in economic research on a wide range of topics: perceived risks for rail accidents, factors for adoption of the residential solar panel, and the impacts of extreme weather on adoption of land conservation practices.
