Oregon State University
Jeff Reimer's research is focused on the economics of international trade, typically with applications to agriculture. He has additional research interests in industrial organization and international development, the latter owing to three years spent doing agricultural development work in rural Bangladesh.
Since receiving his PhD in 2003 from Purdue University, Reimer has published 21 refereed journal articles, a book chapter, and several peer-reviewed papers. Topics include:
- testing and improving economists’ models of international trade,
- documenting barriers to international trade and their effects,
- documenting the role of consumer preferences and their role in markets.
Reimer joined the faculty of Oregon State University in 2005. He teaches graduate statistics, graduate trade theory, and undergraduate price analysis. In his free time he enjoys spending time with family, and being outdoors in the beautiful forests and mountains of Oregon.
