Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious interdisciplinary honor society, has announced that the 2016 NAU Phi Kappa Phi Outstanding Faculty Scholar award will go to Julie Mueller. Each PKP chapter selects one scholar from their own faculty. Mueller is an associate professor with a dual assignment in The W. A. Franke College of Business and the School of Earth Sciences and Environmental Sustainability.

Mueller’s research is in non-market valuation and spatial econometrics. She works across disciplines and colleges at NAU, with graduate students and co-authors in the School of Earth Sciences and Environmental Sustainability as well as Social and Behavioral Sciences. She is an established expert in using hedonic property models to estimate impacts of wildfires. She also works with survey data investigating willingness to pay for forest restoration and watershed services. Her recent projects include a choice experiment survey estimating non-market values of springs in Grand Canyon National Park and an analysis of the impact of the Shultz wildfire and flooding on house prices in Flagstaff, Arizona.
