Richard Woodward, Ph.D. is a professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics. His research interests span a wide range of topics related to environmental and natural resource economics. He has conducted research on the use of market-based policies to address environmental issues, both in general and related to specific with applications including recreational fisheries and nonpoint pollution from agriculture. He has carried out non-market valuation studies using revealed choice methods in recreational fisheries and in ongoing work is using a stated choice experiment to value soil health.
Woodward has also made use of a variety of pseudo-experimental methods to identify causal effects of environmental policies. Finally, he has employed optimization methods to study fisheries management under conditions of extreme uncertainty. His current research program includes several projects related to recreational fisheries including a review of the economics of recreational fishing a study of the effects of short- and long-term changes in water quality on fresh water anglers in Texas and how race and ethnicity at a site may affect anglers’ destination choice.
