Robert Heilmayr combines approaches from economics, geography and ecology to explore the way society uses and governs land.

Leveraging a combination of remote sensing and econometric methods, Heilmayr evaluates private efforts to end deforestation associated with commodity food and fiber production. Heilmayr teaches courses in environmental and natural resource economics, and geographic information systems. Heilmayr also is an Assistant Professor in UCSB's Department of Environmental Studies.
