Profile Field Tabs


Kreg Lindberg teaches in the areas of tourism and recreation, sustainability, and research methods.  He conducts research in subjective well-being, resilience, tourism, and social science aspects of natural resource management.

Current research includes:

  • Subjective well-being as a tool for understanding the impacts of environmental, economic, and policy changes.
  • Community and individual resilience, including development of outcome-oriented survey scales, antecedents of community resilience, and the relationship between resilience and subjective well-being.
  • Visitor preferences and tourism's contribution to community resilience in the Norwegian "Tourism in the new bio-economy (BIOTOUR)" program.
  • Preferences and trade-offs across forest management outcomes, especially among participants in collaborative groups.

Kreg has a Ph.D. in forest social science with a minor in economics from OSU, a masters in international relations from the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, and a bachelors in history from Dartmouth College. He has worked in 15 countries on 6 continents.

When he's not in class or on the computer, Kreg's hiking or cross-country skiing with his wife and their two dogs -- or "racing" in local triathlons and other events.
