Research Interests: 

Dr. Peter Kedron’s research program focuses on understanding how geographic differences in economic activity are related to social and ecological aspects of regions. His ongoing research into the emergence of renewable energy industries examines how innovation, policy, and incumbent response shape geographic patterns of adoption and commercialization. Dr. Kedron also contributes to the development of new spatial analytical methods, with a current focus on technological recombination, cluster detection, and downscaling prediction.   

Within the Oklahoma NSF EPSCoR research project he is involved in the development of novel statewide socio-ecological observation, modeling, and decision-support systems designed to aid in the understanding of connections between humans and their environment. 

Dr. Kedron is also Co-PI on two NSF project grants examining the regional evolution of innovation and production in the US biofuel sector (BCS 1338970), and the effect data composition and configuration have on the statistical biases associated with changes in spatial resolution (BCS 1561021).
