Applied Econometrics, Agricultural Marketing and Industrial Organization, Food Economics, Food Labeling and Policy, Economics of Information, Wine and Beer Economics
Washington State University
My research agenda encompasses multiple aspects of the economics of information in food markets, more specifically how information is transferred from producers to consumers, and its effects on consumer behavior. My most prominent work relates to the study of reputation effects of brands and geographical indications, the marketing/policy implications of food labeling, and the economics analysis of the alcoholic beverage market. My research pairs industrial organization theory, experimental methods and advanced econometric analysis with a good reason to go wine or beer tasting.
