About me

Edgar Tellez Foster, PhD

I am an economist with a particular passion for the environment.

Currently working as a:

    • Senior Environmental Engineer at the Chino Basin Watermaster
    • Lecturer of Environmental Economics at the University of California Riverside

Starting out as a young boy in a poor area in Mexico City where water shortages were frequent I began to get interested in Environmental Issues. During my teen years, I became very much interested in Economics and how people make decisions. I entered the National Autonomous University of Mexico and my appetite for knowledge on how the economic system relates to the environmental problems grew until I continued with my education getting a PhD in Environmental and Resource Economics and Policy at the University of California Riverside. My areas of Interest are:

    • Groundwater Economics
    • Behavioral Economics
    • Experimental Economics

My passion for water goes beyond academia; I am an enthusiast rower, swimmer and beach-goer, where I spent most of my free time.
