APEC welcomes Justin Johnson to the faculty
The department recently welcomed back Justin Johnson as an Assistant Professor of Environmental and Natural Resource Economics. Justin earned a Ph.D. in applied economics from our department in 2014. He then became a senior scientist and economist with the Natural Capital Project at the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment. Justin specializes in food security, climate change, land-use change modeling and agricultural management in developing countries. He’s also interested in computable general equilibrium modeling, behavioral economics and agent-based economic simulation. Justin received his B.A. at St. Olaf College and studied environmental science at Tsinghua University, Beijing, on a Fulbright Scholarship. In his spare time, Justin is an avid mountain biker, rock climber and board game designer.
We are glad to have you back, Justin!
