Renata Rimsaite joined the University of Nebraska - Lincoln in July 2019 as a post-doctoral research associate with a specialization in natural resource and environmental economics and a focus on water markets analysis. Renata has a joint appointment between the National Drought Mitigation Center and the Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute where she analyzes the role of incentive-based water management tools, including water markets, as a potential response to the impacts of drought and climate change. Renata's dissertation research centered on the efficiency of the western U.S. water markets, including the assessment of welfare gains from transferring water rights between different sectors of the economy and the analysis of water managing institutions. Prior to joining UNL, she also analyzed forest ecosystem management policies and worked with stakeholders in different extension and outreach projects as a postdoctoral scholar at the Pennsylvania State University.
