Environmental Economist

Adam Domanski, Ph.D.

Dr. Adam Domanski has over 14 years of experience applying economic tools to aid in environmental policy, business, and legal decisions. He earned a Ph.D. in economics from North Carolina State University and has focused his academic research on the non-market valuation of environmental goods and services. He worked as an Economist with NOAA’s Assessment and Restoration Division during the peak of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, during which he led the Trustee Human Use Technical Working Group and the federal lost recreational use assessment. He has applied lessons learned from that spill to resolve numerous other Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) claims caused by oil and chemical spills throughout the country, as well as develop new tools to assess and resolve environmental liability.
Aside from working on natural resource liability, he’s also served as the Acting Deputy Director of NOAA’s Marine Debris Program and published research on the economic effects of marine debris.
Adam left NOAA in 2017 and moved to the pacific northwest, where he has worked to evaluate a broad range of economic issues for both public and private sector clients, including evaluations of the implications of removal of four dams on the Lower Snake River. In addition to his client-focused work, he serves as an Adjunct Professor at Seattle University where he teaches courses in Applied Econometrics and Environmental Economics. Adam is also the founder of Enduring Econometrics, through which Adam provides expert witness testimony, litigation support, and conducts research.
