Mike Paruszkiewicz


Economist, NERC; Adjunct Faculty, PSU Department of Economics


BA - Columbia College Chicago; BS - Portland State University; MS - Portland State University


Mike's projects at NERC have ranged from natural resource demand modeling, to economic impact analyses of urban and regional policy changes, to short- and long-run regional economic forecasting.  He specializes in building practical approaches to complex economic analysis, managing projects with broad scope, and effectively communicating technical and quantitative information to a general audience.  Mike loves to teach, and has done so in a wide range of environments.


Outside of work, Mike spends most of his time rock climbing and surfing.   Having grown up south of Chicago, IL, he still hasn't gotten over how beautiful (and fun) the Pacific Northwest is.
