My research forms the backbone of my Extension/outreach educational programs. As the needs of the state change I steer my research program in that direction. My long-term research interest includes modeling community and small regional economies in order to better understand the changing dynamics of the economy, assess the impact of those changes, and identify local economic strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. This area of work includes work using IMPLAN, a regional input-output modeling system along with a family of statistical models of regional structure. Given the current and pending proposals to fundamentally alter the system of public finance in Wisconsin much of my current work has focused on the role of the public sector in community and regional economic growth.

My outreach program is built upon and helps steer my research program. The guiding principals of my outreach program is to "help people make more informed decisions". This includes original research to help provide the inform base for those decisions and working closely with Extension county faculty to facilitate the educational and decision-making processes. Because of the educational philosophy of the CNRED program area, I view my job as "making the Extension educator look good". I do this by providing basic training in the economic way of thinking about issues, tools for analysis at the local level, and Wisconsin and community specific information that is required for county faculty to be the most effective in their educational programs.
