I am an applied microeconomist studying the social welfare implications of agriculture, with a particular interest in food value chains, food security, behavioral economics, and climate change.

I’ve conducted research in Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Ecuador, and have also been a fellow at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and at Innsbruck University.
