In his doctoral work, Dr. Maisashvili developed a dynamic and recursive partial equilibrium model to study the effect of renewable fuel standards on beef and dairy sectors. His research also included an application of hedonic pricing model for whole algae and post-extracted algae residue meal for aquaculture and estimation of the economic feasibility of biofuel production and high value squalene from a tobacco biomass. In his master of science work, Dr. Maisashvili studied the feasibility of rainfall insurance for Texas ranchers.

Currently, Dr. Maisashvili is working with AFPC scientists to merge the AFPC U.S. crops model, with dairy beef, and swine model and the regional poultry model into an inter-related sector level simulation model for policy analysis. He is also developing an aggregate accounting system to calculate annual net farm income and government expenditures for farm program sand crop insurance.

Dr. Maisashvili is from Tbilisi, in the country of Georgia.
