My research lies at the intersection of agricultural economics, food policy, and development economics. A few specific areas in which I have been conducting research include land markets, market access, risk and uncertainty, agricultural value chains, food prices, and agricultural policy.
I have been co-Principal Investigator on a National Science Foundation Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant and Principal Investigator on an Index Insurance Innovation Initiative grant. I currently serve as associate editor at Food Policy. I am also an associate editor at the American Journal of Agricultural Economics.
