About the author (2004)

Cutler J. Cleveland is currently Professor in the Department of Geography and Environment and the Center for Energy and Environmental Studies at Boston University. Dr. Cleveland is editor-in-chief of the Encyclopedia of Energy, winner of an American Library Association award, editor of the Dictionary of Energy, and editor-in-chief of the journal Ecological Economics. Dr. Cleveland is chairman of the Environmental Information Coalition, the governing body of the Earth Portal.

Dr. Cleveland has been a consultant to numerous private and public organizations, including the Asian Development Bank, the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development, Charles River Associates, the Technical Research Centre of Finland, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. A member of the American Statistical Association's Committee on Energy Statistics, he is also a participant in the Stanford Energy Modeling Forum, and part of an advisory group to the U.S. Department of Energy.

Dr. Cleveland's research centers largely on econometric models of oil supply, natural resource scarcity, and the relation between energy use, natural resources, and economic systems. The National Science Foundation, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and the MacArthur Foundation have all supported Dr. Cleveland's research. Dr. Cleveland has published his findings in journals such as Nature, Science, Ecological Modeling, Energy, The Energy Journal, The Annual Review of Energy, Resource and Energy Economics, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists Bulletin, the Canadian Journal of Forest Research, and Ecological Economics.

Through the years, Dr. Cleveland has been the recipient of many awards. For his unique and innovative contributions to the field of energy economics, Dr. Cleveland was given the Adelman-Frankel Award from the United States Association of Energy Economics. In addition to receiving publication awards from the International Association of Energy Economics, and the National Wildlife Federation, he has also won teaching awards from the University of Illinois and Boston University's College of Arts and Sciences Honors Program.
