Professor of Resource Modeling and Bioeconomics (211-0491)
The area of natural resource modeling and bioeconomics is central to several research activities at the Department of Food and Resource Economics, including activities in developing countries focusing on resource dependent communities. The research area at the Department is expected to have a strong emphasis on empirical research and data analysis. The professor will join in and lead research activities focused on understanding and modeling how renewable resource growth and ecosystem dynamics interact with the economics of humans' resource use and management. Likewise, the professor will also contribute to research in how economics and politics governing human decision making and incentives feed back into resource dynamics and growth and affect renewable resource sustainability and development.
