Wolfram Schlenker is a Professor at Columbia University in the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) and the Earth Institute, where he co-directs the Center for Environmental Economics and Policy (CEEP). His research focuses on empirical economic studies. In the past, Wolfram has studied the effect of weather and climate on agricultural yields, how climate trends influence agricultural commodity prices, and how pollution impacts both agricultural yields and human morbidity.

As a senior fellow at the Collegium, Wolfram examined how institutional settings such as property rights affect agricultural productivity as well as the role of technological innovation in environmental and climate policy.
