Research Interests and Experience

Dr. Bergtold’s research includes: production economics, environmental economics, energy economics and applied econometrics. I have extensively examined the economics of conservation policy and production practices; bioenergy and renewable energy production; environmental and nonmarket valuation and state choice methods; interaction between agricultural practices, conservation policy and the environment at the farm level; examination of economic, farm, policy and social factors influencing land-use and land cover change across agricultural landscapes; and applied econometrics in the areas of model specification issues and discrete choice modeling.
