Assistant Professor of Economics
- B.A., Denison University
- Ph.D., The Ohio State University
Will Georgic studied Philosophy, Political Science, and Economics at Denison University before earning his doctorate in Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics at The Ohio State University. He has taught at both universities in addition to teaching at Kalamazoo College before joining Ohio Wesleyan. His liberal arts background and training in applied methods motivate both his teaching and research, with problem-solving and critical thinking emphasized in both activities. His research is primarily concerned with studying environmental problems likely to worsen with climate change (including flooding and harmful algal blooms) and informing more efficient policy decisions. In the classroom, he is dedicated to helping students grow as pluralistic and empirical economists.
