Dr. Fackler is a Professor of Agricultural and Resource Economics at NC State. For many years his research focused on agricultural price analysis, futures and options markets, risk assessment and management, and computational economics. Dr. Fackler published a widely cited book with Mario Miranda, Applied Computational Economics and Finance, which presents a variety of computational methods especially those used to solve dynamic problems in economics and finance. Recently he has shifted his focus to the application of dynamic optimization theory to problems in environmental and resource economics including
land use and conservation, control of greenhouse gases and optimal resource extraction and harvesting. Dr. Fackler teaches graduate courses on natural resource management and computational methods in economics.
