Sandra H. Goff, PhD

Associate Professor of Economics
Skidmore College

I am an associate professor in the economics department at Skidmore College, located in Saratoga Springs, New York. My research uses agent-based computational models and experimental methods in the lab and field to explore prosocial economic behavior. My recent work has focused on sucker aversion and responsibility aversion in giving to and doing for others, the use of ecosystem services valuation (ESV) in promoting environmental philanthropy, the effects of emotions, especially guilt, on ethical consumption, and the effects of economics education on attitudes towards market systems, externalities, and government intervention. When I am not teaching or doing research, I enjoy training for marathons, playing board games with my family, and throwing a ball around the yard for my doggo, Rey.
