RESEARCH TOPICS
 
PROFILE

​Ariel Ortiz-Bobea’s current research focuses on agricultural sustainability and resource issues. Much of his recent work has focused on assessing the impacts of climate change on US agriculture and analyzing potential adaptation mechanisms and policies. In general, his research interests include water sustainability, risk management and natural disasters, and genetically modified crops, and the work often involves econometric analysis based on large environmental spatial datasets. His ongoing research suggests that the US agricultural sector has  greater room for adaptation to climate change than the economic literature currently indicates, pointing to more optimistic prospects for key areas of the sector. Although Ortiz-Bobea’s contributions are primarily methodological in this area, upcoming research in this area will expand to subtropical areas where climatic constraints are different. Earlier in his career, he served as special assistant to the Minister of the Environment of the Dominican Republic, where he managed the minister's office and support staff and ensured the coordination of key ministry-wide initiatives.
