Chang K. Seung
Chang is an economist conducting regional economic analysis for Alaska fisheries. He has worked at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center since 2002. His research involves evaluating regional or community economic impacts of fisheries management policies and fishery-related climate changes and natural disasters using economy-wide models such as input-output (IO) models, social accounting matrix (SAM) models, and computable general equilibrium (CGE) models. His studies typically calculate the effects on industry output, value-added, and economic welfare. Examples of his studies include studies on the economic impacts of change in Pollock TAC, the economic impacts of fishery disasters, the community economic impacts of marine heat waves in Gulf of Alaska fisheries, and the economic effects of fishery rationalization.
Chang graduated from The Ohio State University with a Ph.D. in Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics.
