Pavlo (Pasha) Buryi, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Economics
Dr. Pavlo Buryi earned his Ph.D. in Economics, along with a Masters degree and Bachelors degree, from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Prior to joining Harrisburg University of Science and Technology, he held faculty positions at the University of Tampa, and Northern Illinois University. His primary field of expertise is the Economics of Innovation and Technological Change.
Dr. Buryi is very passionate about teaching and takes pride in what he does. Most of his free time is spent searching for current examples of economic concepts in the real world. He uses these examples to initiate a discussion and engage students on the topic. After each class, Dr. Buryi makes all videos and lecture notes available on Moodle. It is a great tool as it allows students to learn at their own pace and keep track of their grades and feedback. However, in the classroom, he prefers a more traditional approach like writing notes on the board and explaining ideas/concepts without PowerPoint slides. When students rewrite the notes, they are physically engaged, and as a result, more attentive.
Dr. Buryi’s research focuses on the importance of product R&D and the role of public support in promoting such R&D. He developed a microeconomic model of product R&D to provide a theoretical basis for optimal choices of private investment and matching public support, used in widely popular “matching grant” state programs. Moreover, by introducing international competition into the basic theoretical framework of the matching game, he considers public support for product R&D as an optional policy of import substitution. Finally, his research provides an optimal structure of public R&D support.
