Lisa Philo

  • Research Associate


Lisa DeProspo Philo has worked as a communications specialist for the University of Rhode Island’s NEMO Program since 2004 and as a program evaluator for the Metcalf Institute since 2019. The diplomas that she keeps meaning to frame but are now probably yellowing and moth-ridden include a bachelor’s degree in science communication from Cornell University and a master’s degree in environmental and natural resource economics from URI. Her research has flowed from the economics of water resources and economic evaluation of land use to the communication of environmental issues including climate change, land use, stormwater pollution, and source water protection.

Lisa works as a part-time Research Assistant with Metcalf Institute, and she led our impacts assessments in 2022.
