Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Finance
  • Microeconomics
  • Social psychology

W. J. Wouter Botzen mainly investigates Flood myth, Environmental resource management, Actuarial science, Flood insurance and Natural resource economics. His Flood mitigation study in the realm of Flood myth connects with subjects such as Government. His research in Environmental resource management intersects with topics in Megacity and Risk financing.

In the subject of general Actuarial science, his work in Risk pool is often linked to Risk perception, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His Natural resource economics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Global warming, Urbanization, Political economy of climate change and Willingness to pay. His Natural disaster research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Prospect theory and Effects of global warming.

His most cited work include:

  • A review of risk perceptions and other factors that influence flood mitigation behavior. (462 citations)
  • Increasing stress on disaster-risk finance due to large floods (289 citations)
  • Evaluating Flood Resilience Strategies for Coastal Megacities (252 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

W. J. Wouter Botzen spends much of his time researching Flood myth, Actuarial science, Flood insurance, Natural disaster and Natural resource economics. His Flood myth research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Incentive, Flooding, Environmental resource management and Environmental planning. His Risk pool study, which is part of a larger body of work in Actuarial science, is frequently linked to Worry, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His work carried out in the field of Flood insurance brings together such families of science as Prospect theory, Emergency management and Public economics. The Natural disaster study combines topics in areas such as Disaster risk reduction and Scale. His work investigates the relationship between Risk management and topics such as Risk analysis that intersect with problems in Vulnerability.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Flood myth (87.32%)
  • Actuarial science (44.37%)
  • Flood insurance (37.68%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Flood myth (87.32%)
  • Natural resource economics (29.93%)
  • Natural disaster (34.51%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

W. J. Wouter Botzen mainly focuses on Flood myth, Natural resource economics, Natural disaster, Actuarial science and Incentive. His Flood myth study combines topics in areas such as Hurricane preparedness and Environmental resource management. Stylized fact is closely connected to Scale in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Natural resource economics.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Disaster risk reduction, Storm, Capital and Generalized method of moments in addition to Natural disaster. In Actuarial science, W. J. Wouter Botzen works on issues like Moral hazard, which are connected to Risk aversion, Insurance market, Investment and Causal inference. His work deals with themes such as Climate change in the European Union and Flood risk assessment, which intersect with Incentive.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The safe development paradox: An agent-based model for flood risk under climate change in the European Union (12 citations)
  • The safe development paradox: An agent-based model for flood risk under climate change in the European Union (12 citations)
  • The safe development paradox: An agent-based model for flood risk under climate change in the European Union (12 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Finance
  • Microeconomics
  • Social psychology

W. J. Wouter Botzen mostly deals with Flood myth, Natural resource economics, Incentive, Environmental resource management and Flood insurance. W. J. Wouter Botzen works in the field of Flood myth, namely Flood risk management. His study in Natural resource economics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Climate change in the European Union and Flood risk assessment.

His research integrates issues of Climate change adaptation, Scale, Elevation, Investment decisions and Economic efficiency in his study of Environmental resource management. His Flood insurance research incorporates themes from Climate change scenario, Causal inference and Psychological resilience. His Moral hazard study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Insurance market, Financial incentives, Risk aversion and Investment.
