AREC Welcomes James Archsmith

Welcome James Archsmith

The Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics would like to welcome its newest faculty member James Archsmith, who will be serving as an assistant professor specializing in energy and environmental economics, industrial organization and applied econometrics.

Professor Archsmith will be teaching two classes in the upcoming semester: AREC/ECON 785, Advanced Economics of Natural Resources with Professor Jorge Holzer and AREC 380, Data Science for Environmental and Resource Economics. The latter is a brand new class that will introduce students to principles of data science using modern, open source software tools with applications to problems in environmental, resource and energy economics.

Professor Archsmith is a recent graduate of University of California, Davis, where he received his PhD in economics. Prior to receiving his doctorate degree, Archsmith attended the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor to study environmental policy and behavior, as well as applied economics. His most recent research, which was published in the Journal of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists in October, focuses on adopting effective and low-cost environmental policies surrounding air quality.

Welcome Professor Archsmith!
