In her research, Dr. Apriesnig primarily focuses on coupling economic and ecological systems to evaluate fisheries management issues. While interested in many natural resources, part of her work focuses on the Great Lakes fisheries and evaluating the economic and ecological implications of aquatic invasive species to the region. She enjoys working with students and engaging students of all backgrounds and interests. She is originally from Duluth, Minnesota, and attributes her passion for natural resource economics to growing up in a Great Lakes state. In her free time, she enjoys gardening, golfing, and cheering on the Vikings.
