Dr. Sarah Kruse is a Staff Economist in Ecotrust's Knowledge Systems program. Kruse conducts quantitative and qualitative research that integrates economic, ecological and social considerations into each analysis.

Since joining Ecotrust in 2005, Kruse has worked on a variety of projects including an economic assessment of dam removal on the Klamath River, an evaluation of the Abernethy Scratch Kitchen, a review of the economic value of the Bering River coalfield, a socioeconomic baseline assessment of the Pribilof Islands and a case study of the Yukon River commercial salmon fishery.

Prior to coming to Ecotrust, Kruse worked as a research associate for the Great Lakes Protection Fund at The Ohio State University from 2002 to 2005. In this role, she researched the economics of dam removal and river restoration. She also guest lectured for graduate-level classes on cost-benefit analysis, contingent valuation, survey design and the integration of psychology into economic valuation.
