Hyeongyul Roh is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at North Carolina State University. His current research interests lie at the intersection of energy, environmental, and resource economics, and industrial organizations. Currently, Hyeongyul is working on several projects including analyzing the implication of recent dramatic changes to U.S. electricity market, particularly through increased wind generation and falling natural gas prices, and improving the optimal control of evolutionary dynamics governing resistance to transgenic crops.
