John Antle is a professor in the Department of Applied Economics at Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon, and a University Fellow at Resources for the Future, Washington, D.C. He received the Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Chicago in 1980, and was formerly a professor at UC Davis and Montana State University. He has served as a senior staff economist for the President's Council of Economic Advisers in Washington, D.C. (1989-90); as a member of the National Research Council's Board on Agriculture (1991 97); and was a lead and contributing author to the IPCC third and fourth assessment reports. He is a Fellow and past President of the American Agricultural Economics Association. His current research focuses on the sustainability of agricultural systems in industrialized and developing countries, including climate change impacts, adaptation and mitigation in agriculture; assessment of environmental and social impacts of agricultural technologies; and geologic carbon sequestration.

Many of his research projects are related to the Tradeoff Analysis Project. He is also co-leading the Economics Team of the Agricultural Model Inter-comparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP).
