Who I Am

I am an assistant professor–and, on August 31, 2015, will become associate professor–in the Department of Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota and one of the two editors of the journal Food Policy. I am also the director of the Center for International Food and Agricultural Policy at the University of Minnesota.

My research lies at the intersection of agricultural economics, food policy, and international development. A few specific areas in which I have been conducting research include land markets, market access, risk and uncertainty, agricultural value chains, and food prices.

For my research, I have won the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association’s (AAEA) Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award in 2007, the AAEA’s Outstanding American Journal of Agricultural Economics Article award in 2011, and the AAEA’s Quality of Research Discovery awards in 2014. That same year, I have also won the European Association of Agricultural Economists’ Quality of Research Discovery Award.

What I write on this blog is solely my opinion and not that of the University of Minnesota.

Who I Am Not

After receiving several emails intended for him, I must insist that I am not the former Québec Minister of Justice.
