  • Assistant Professor of Ag Economics
765.494.7545
Krannert Room 591A

Dr. Juan Sesmero is as an assistant professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics. He completed his Ph.D. in agricultural economics at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Juan's teaching and research activities are focused primarily on natural resource and environmental economics.

He has a strong interest in the identification and measurement of trade-offs between economic efficiency and distributional equity in the context of energy, climate, and water policy.

Juan is also interested in the role of technological progress in resource extraction and the resulting ecological sustainability of production systems. His research also includes measurement of environmental and marketing efficiency in the biofuels industry and agricultural productivity growth in China.
