Current Research

My research projects are in the area of soil and water management in crop production and coastal wetland restorations and planning. The primary research goals are directed toward understanding landowners’ decision to participate in state and/or federal conservation programs based on landowner’s perspective and to provide potential policy evaluating instruments. The overall objective of my research and extension program is to evaluate and assess the impact of farm product policies as well as wetland restoration policies on the economic decision making of landowners and their operation and how they subsequently affect the well-being of regional communities.
