Dr. Goldstein works in the fields of ecosystem services, conservation finance, and ecological economics exploring novel pathways to align economic forces with conservation. His research addresses the question of how to strategically invest in conserving biodiversity and supplying ecosystem services (the benefits provided by ecosystems that support human well-being) from both private and public lands. He is currently working with stakeholders in Hawaii to develop business strategies for conservation through reforestation of working lands. He is also a collaborator on the Natural Capital Project, a partnership between Stanford University, The Nature Conservancy, and World Wildlife Fund.
