    President's Profile


Ross Cullen was elected AARES President at the Society’s Annual General Meeting held in Rotorua during the 59th Annual Conference. Ross is Professor Emeritus at Lincoln University, New Zealand. He grew up on a sheep and beef farm in South Otago, New Zealand. Ross completed a Diploma in Agriculture and a Diploma in Valuation and Farm Management at (then) Lincoln College, where he first studied economics. After three years driving up production levels on a family-owned farm in South Otago, and conscious of diminishing marginal productivity, he departed for further University study and a new career. Ross completed a BCom (Hons) in economics at University of Otago, 1974-77. His first professional position was Assistant Lecturer in economics at University of Otago, which enabled him to complete a PhD by thesis; The inter-country diffusion of pharmaceutical products.
 
Soon after completion of his PhD, Ross commenced teaching and research on resource and environmental economics, and his research since 1982 has ranged across that terrain. He has published articles in about 45 diverse journals, with clusters in: environmental risk - biodiversity, habitat and environmental sustainability; resource management – fisheries, forestry, water, natural area, mineral and energy policies; innovation and adoption studies; evaluation of the benefits and costs of environmental projects.
 
Ross has been active in consulting to policy makers in New Zealand, and contributing to professional associations including, AARES, NZARES, and NZAE. He was co-editor of AJARE 2011-2013. Ross was head of Department of Economics and Marketing, and the Department of Accounting, Economics and Finance, both at Lincoln University. In his spare time Ross climbs mountains and crags. His 2014 book, Slice of heaven; climbs and scrambles on seven continents, has an informal subtitle – ‘An economist goes climbing’.
