Katrin Rehdanz studied economics at the University of Hamburg. She earned her doctorate in 2004. In 2007, she was offered a position as assistant professor within the Cluster of Excellence ‘Future Ocean’. Until 2012 she was leading the young researcher group ‘Valuing the Ocean’ within the Cluster.

Research questions

She has a wide array of research interests revolving around the issue of ensuring sustainable well-being. Her particular interests lie in the field of quantitative analysis using spatial explicit information and the valuation of non-market benefits and costs. Central research questions include:

  • How to assess changes in the provisioning of environmental goods and services? What is, e.g., the economic impact of ocean acidification? Would people value improvements in cultural ecosystem services of the Baltic Sea?
  • What determines people’s willingness to accept new climate change mitigation options? How does knowledge about these options impact mitigation behavior?
  • There are different ways to reduce marine litter. Which alternatives do lay people prefer and why?
