Who I Am
I am an associate professor in the Department of Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota, where I also direct the Center for International Food and Agricultural Policy. I also serve as one of two co-editors of Food Policy.
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 (with Zack Brown), and the AAEA’s Quality of Research Discovery awards in 2014 (with Chris Barrett and David Just). I also won the European Association of Agricultural Economists’ Quality of Research Discovery Award in 2014 (also with Chris Barrett and David Just). My work has also been covered by media outlets such as the New York Times, The Economist, and National Public Radio.
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.
