Portrait of Sethuram Soman

Sethuram (Seth) Soman has been teaching and conducting joint research with undergraduate students for over a decade. His research interest is on the process and effects of environmental decision-making. 

In addition to designing and delivering courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels, he served on a number of university-wide committees and as an interim department chair. Courses designed for both face-to-face and online include: principles of economics, business statistics, financial management, commodities futures and options market, natural resources economics, GIS for business, remote sensing, farm management, and agriculture marketing.

Professor Soman considers himself an early adopter and enjoys employing a variety of instructional technologies in his classes. He is well versed in using online teaching platforms such as Blackboard, Moodle, and Canvas. He employs clickers in his classes as well as simulations and trading games. In fact, one of his career highlights was leading a team of students who won first place in a national commodity trading competition.

Most of his research is done in collaboration with multidisciplinary teams and designed to understand the economic, social, and environmental trade-offs associated with alternative policies. Some of the recently completed projects includes the use of agent-based models to study the impact of landowner behavior in the provision of various ecosystems services at a watershed level.

His research also utilizes GIS and integrated modeling techniques to understand the human impact on ecosystems, spatially linking those outcomes at a landscape level, with a view to inform policy making.

Prior to joining Norwich University, he served on the faculty at Northwest Missouri State and Dickinson State universities.
