Associate Professor Søren Bøye Olsen, born in 1976, has eleven years of research experience with economic valuation of non-marketed goods such as nature and environmental services. He has worked extensively with Stated Preference methods, and has participated in several research projects at regional, national and international level. He has made important contributions to the scientific literature focusing particularly on explaining seemingly anomalous respondent behaviour in Stated Preference surveys. Besides value assessments of non-market environmental goods, his research has focused on understanding consumer behaviour and preferences for food products with the purpose of predicting demand for new products. Furthermore, he works with Cost-Benefit Analysis and Multi-Criteria Analysis methods with a focus on practical applications aimed at generating advice for policy and decision makers. He serves as Head of Studies for the MSc programme in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics at University of Copenhagen, and he teaches courses in "Economic Valuation Methods and Cost-Benefit Analysis" and "Applied Environmental and Natural Resource Economics". He has supervised more than 20 MSc theses students and five PhD students.
