Karl R. Geisler, Ph.D
Karl is the first graduate from our Ph.D. program. He has proven himself as an excellent teacher, and consistently ranks among the best in the department and the college on teaching evaluations. His main areas of study are regional & spatial economics, environmental & natural resource economics, though he also has research interests in behavioral economics and game theory. As he works to get a full-time academic position, he is doing research with the University Center for Economic Development and teaches introductory classes for our department, as well as a senior & grad-level class in regional economics.
When he's not teaching or working on research, Karl can usually be found outside. In the winter he volunteers his time as a ski patroller and avalanche instructor, and in the summer he spends free time whitewater rafting with his wife and their two dogs.
