Professor Roberts joined the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law at University of
Louisville as a member of the faculty in July of 2010. She has previously worked as a
Research Affiliate of Vanderbilt University's Climate Change Research Network and
has held a Fellowship with the Searle-Kauffman Institute on Law, Innovation, and Growth.
Her research focuses on the intersection of tax and environmental and land use
regulation. She is currently using the New Institutional Economics as a lens with which
to examine private governance institutions that have been developed to address social and
environmental concerns.
