Agricultural economist Dan Bigelow to join Oregon State as AP

Agricultural and resource economist Dan Bigelow is set to take up a tenure track assistant professor role at Oregon State University.

He joins the institution from the department of agricultural economics and economics at Montana State University, where he has been an AP since 2019. Previously, he was a research economist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s economic research service, and received his Ph.D. in applied economics from Oregon State.

Bigelow’s research has focused on the use of applied statistical techniques to study the interconnections between market outcomes and the management of land and water resources.

His new role has a research-extension-teaching split, and he starts work on Aug. 15. 

Commenting on Twitter, Bigelow said: “I’ll miss my friends and colleagues in Bozeman but could not be more thrilled to be back in Corvallis!”
