Words from Economics Faculty
Ryan Olver?| Assistant Professor of Agricultural and Resource Economics
"During my bachelor’s degree, I originally thought I would search for a career in designing environmental regulations. Before graduating, I had the opportunity to intern for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and work with a senior economist in my department. I learned that what I wanted to do required advanced analytical tools from statistics and economics, and reorganized my last few semesters to prepare for graduate school in economics. In graduate school, I began studying pesticides under the mentorship of my advisor, which eventually turned into an interest in the agricultural production process as a whole. I am particularly excited to be part of the E-Track program at TIU, which I believe offers students several benefits, but perhaps the most unique of these is the cultural exposure they receive, both to Japanese culture as well as to their peers from dozens of other countries. Our students not only become more conscientious global citizens, but can also leverage their cross-cultural experiences in our progressively more globalized world."
