Dominic (Nick) Parker, the Ilene and Morton Harris Senior Fellow (adjunct) at the Hoover Institution, is a professor of applied economics at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. In addition to teaching and serving editorial roles at three leading journals in environmental economics, he directs a summer fellowship program at the Property Environment Research Center and is a regular lecturer for the Ronald Coase Institute and the Elinor Ostrom Workshop.

Parker’s research appears in economics, science, and law journals and it spans topics in environmental and development economics. It includes studies of environmental markets and property rights, mining in Africa, oil booms and busts, land use, fishery and wildlife regulations, water trading, and renewable energy. His research on the unintended effects of US financial regulation on African mining economies, and of wolves on deer-vehicle collisions in the US, has received widespread attention from over 100 media outlets including BBC News, Wall Street Journal, the Atlantic, the Associated Press, and The Economist. His research has also provided input for a US Senate Foreign Relations committee and an OECD advisory panel on global supply chain issues.  

Parker joins Hoover Senior Fellow Terry Anderson in directing the Hoover Project on Renewing Indigenous Economies. He has published on this subject in venues such as The Economic Journal, the Journal of Development Economics, AEA Papers & Proceedings, and the Journal of Law & Economics.
