Gautam Sethi teaches environmental and natural resource economics at Bard CEP. His research includes institutional mechanisms to improve water quality in Oaxaca, Mexico, and the impact of wind farms on residential property values in the U.S. “What I value most about Bard CEP is its ability to challenge and reshape one’s views. I am constantly challenged, by my colleagues and students, to think of the world in ways I had not hitherto, and I hope to have a similar effect on their worldview.”—Gautam Sethi, Associate Professor, Bard CEP
Monique Segarra, assistant professor of politics, teaches environmental policy analysis and climate politics. Her research focuses on the intersection of natural resource management, climate change, and human rights in the global south and the politics of water reform in Oaxaca, Mexico.
“Working with graduate students at CEP has enriched my work as a political scientist. The interdisciplinary nature of the program deepens our students’ ability to analyze and think about the policy process and how the key driver of our time, climate change and adaptation, is shaping our future policy choices.”
