Curriculum Vitae


I am an Assistant Professor of Agricultural Economics at Colorado State UniversityI hold a Ph.D. in Agricultural and Applied Economics from the University of Wisconsin. My work focuses on food establishment location and pricing decisions, food security and nutritional quality, and regional food systems. I am interested in understanding what drives consumers’ food-purchase decisions, why households do not fully adhere to nutrition recommendations, and how we can design effective policies to increase nutritional quality, particularly for at-risk households. I am also committed to undergraduate and graduate instruction and teach the introductory course on agricultural and resource economics as well as courses on food and agricultural markets and demand analysis.
