Dr. Gan's current research centers on the economics of bioenergy and natural and human disturbances including climate change, wildfire, pest infestation, and invasion of alien species as related to forest resource management/conservation. He is also keen in issues related to forest product trade, forestry governance, and socially or economically disadvantaged forestland owners. In addition, he has research experience in bioenergy and sustainable forest management in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
