Andrew Scheld


Andrew Scheld uses economic theory and quantitative modeling approaches to study questions related to human use and management in fisheries and aquaculture. He is interested in changing human uses, impacts, and management objectives in marine ecosystems, how uncertainty and risk influence decision-making and economic behavior, and the development and application of integrated modeling tools to advance sustainability of coastal communities. He engages in state and regional fisheries management through participation on the Committee on Economics and Social Sciences of the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission.
