Professor Wu's research areas include the optimal design of agri-environmental policy, the spatial modeling of land use change and its impacts on economic and environmental systems, and the analysis of rural-urban interdependency and spatial variation in economic development. The specific topics that he has focused on include economic and environmental impacts of open-space conservation; environmental regulation and the spatial distribution of economic activity; land-use patterns and ecosystem services; crop insurance and nonpoint-source water pollution; optimal allocation of conservation funds in the presence of threshold effects and ecosystem linkages; targeting payments for ecosystem services under asymmetric information; the slippage effect of conservation programs; environmental and distributional impacts of alternative conservation targeting strategies; mandatory versus voluntary environmental regulations; dynamic interactions between urban development and land use regulations; the impacts of bioenergy production on land use and environmental quality; causes and evolution of spatial variations in economic development; firms' motivations for environmental violations and over-compliance; and energy policy, land use patterns, and economic development.

Professor Wu has received several awards for quality research, including the Quality of Research Discovery Award from the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association and the Outstanding Published Research Awards from the Western Agricultural Economics Association. He is a Co-Editor of the American Journal of Agricultural Economics.

Biography

JunJie Wu’s research extends to several fields in economics, including resource and environmental economics, agricultural economics, regional science, and urban economics. But a central theme of his research is to integrate the theory and methods of these disparate fields along with bio-physical modeling for better understanding the economic drivers and environmental consequences of land use patterns and policy. In doing so, he has made contributions to the design and evaluation of agro-environmental policy; spatial modeling of land use change and ecosystem services, rural-urban interdependencies, and causes and evolution of spatial disparities in economic development. He has received several awards for his work, including the Quality of Research Discovery Award from the American Agricultural Economics Association and the Outstanding Published Research Award from the Western Agricultural Economics Association. He is an editor of the American Journal of Agricultural Economics and an associate editor of Journal of Regional Science, and has served on the editorial council for several journals, including the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management and Land Economics.
