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.
