I am an applied economist and work as a Visiting Assistant Professor at the Department of Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota.

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