    President's Profile

At the Society's Annual General Meeting held during the 57th Annual Conference in Port Macquarie, 4-7 February 2014, Alan Randall became president of the Society.  He is an honorary professor in both Economics and Agriculture and Environment at the University of Sydney, and a professor emeritus at the Ohio State University.  He began his career with bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Sydney and a research economist appointment at the NSW Department of Agriculture.  Alan’s research interests include environmental risk; biodiversity, habitat, and environmental sustainability; environmental regulation, monitoring, and enforcement; and the benefits and costs of environmental projects and programs. 

Alan has been active in consulting and outreach to policy-makers, and in professional associations including AARES, AAEA, and AERE.  At USydney, he encouraged colleagues to be responsive to media requests for comment on public issues with agricultural and resource economics dimensions, and he was frequently seen, heard, and quoted (as the case may be) on TV, radio, and the print media.  He was head of the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of Sydney 2011-2014, and chair of the Department of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics at Ohio State University 1998-2010.

For his plenary address in Rotorua for AARES 2015, he is planning to build upon his recent work on managing public risks.
