  • Biography/ Background

    Jungho obtained his doctoral degree in the field of environmental economics in 2002 from the University of Queensland. He joined the University of Adelaide in 2006. His general research interests include integrated rice-duck farming, nature-based tourism, community-based natural resource management in developing countries, and the economic valuation of non-market services provided by natural and environmental resources. Jungho has been teaching the principles of economics and their applications in contemporary environmental and social issues. 

    His current research interest areas range from economic philosophy to back-to-the-land migration and to community-based ecotourism. He is also interested in Asian philosophy and religion, such as Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism, in the context of economic and environmental philosophy. His interest in Asian philosophy led him to research into permaculture (permanent agriculture) philosophy and ecovillage movements. In 2012, he obtained a Permaculture Design Certificate at the Food Forest, a permaculture farm in Adelaide, South Australia. Out of his interest in ecovillages, Jungho has recently visited various ecovillages including Crystal Waters in Queensland, Auroville in Tamil Nadu, Findhorn Ecovillage in Scotland, and Ecovillage at Ithaca in New York.
