Research Interest Statement

I am currently developing production models for the joint production of good and bad outputs, and adopting them as tools in performance measurement. This research path allows me to bridge a broad area of economics including environmental economics, international trade, and index number theory.

Biographical Sketch

I am Professor of Agricultural and Resource Economics, and Economics at Oregon State University. Before joining OSU, I was a Professor of Economics at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. Ronald W. Shephard (known for Shephard's Lemma) made it possible for me to come to the United States. See also ISI Highly Cited.
