I am an applied economist and Assistant Professor at the Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University.

My research interests are rooted in agricultural, environmental & resource economics. Currently, I work on uncertainty in international trade global value chain participation, agricultural market shocks, and socio-environmental trade-offs in agricultural production systems. My research often has policy focus and features data-science approaches.
