innovation, the dynamics of economic adjustment, and economic policy
issues. This research program can be classified broadly as dynamic
economic modeling with more recent efforts focusing on the dynamic
generalizations of scale and scope economies, efficiency, productivity
growth, learning-by-doing, capacity utilization, and product
In 2006, Dr. Stefanou will be
