Sechindra Vallury earned his Ph.D. in 2019 from the Arizona State University. A key component of his work focuses on understanding how institutions (rules, norms, and strategies) may shape stakeholder decisions to adopt water conservation practices in agricultural communities. Additionally, his work examines the determinants of rangeland owners’ adaptation to undesirable ecosystem transitions in the American West. Trained as an interdisciplinary social scientist, his work draws on economic theory as well as studies of environmental management and social-ecological resilience. His work integrates these theories with diverse quantitative methods to provide “solutions” that may improve the equity outcomes of climate adaptation policies
