The Alumni Chapter of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources will present the Excellence in Research award to Erik Lichtenberg at the 48th Annual Alumni Celebration this April.

Erik Lichtenberg, PhD, a professor in the Department of Agricultural and Resources Economics, is known for his expertise on the economics of pesticide use and for his research on the interface between agriculture and the environment. He has attracted substantial grant funding from prestigious sources including the Rockefeller Foundation, USDA’s National Research Initiative, the EPA, the USGS, and the Lincoln Institute – an impressive accomplishment in a discipline where research does not require a lab. Lichtenberg also headed the socioeconomic component of the National Center for Manure and Animal Waste Management, a $5 million multi-state consortium. He has served on two National Research Council Committees and as Senior Staff Economist on the President’s Council of Economic Advisers. The Agricultural and Applied Economics Association acknowledged Lichtenberg’s contribution to the profession by awarding him its highest honor of Fellow in the Association in 2010.
