Dr. Tom J. Frye | Economics
Hello! I am Dr. Tom J. Frye. I am a recent Ph.D. graduate from Florida State University's Department of Economics. Beginning in Fall 2023 I will be joining the Department of Economics & Finance at Georgia College & State University as an assistant professor of economics.
I am an experimental economist interested in property rights, natural resources, and environmental uncertainty. From fisheries and wildlife to crude oil and natural gas, I conduct laboratory experiments to gain insight into the institutional, financial, and behavioral incentives that govern responses to resource scarcity and uncertainty. In particular, I am interested in how formal and informal institutions of property rights shape preferences toward the consumption and conservation of natural resources.
