Welcome to my homepage!

My name is Wesley (Wes) Howden. I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Wesleyan University. I study how individuals and societies adapt and mitigate against the impacts of climate and environmental change.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Arizona Department of Economics and worked with the Arizona Institute for Resilience. I received my Ph.D. in economics at the University of California San Diego.
