I’m an assistant professor of agricultural economics at McGill University. My research focuses on farmer decision making. I am particularly interested in the inclusion of behavioural and experimental theory and methods in agricultural and resource economics.
I earned my Ph.D. in Agricultural, Food, and Resource Economics at Michigan State University. My doctoral research took a behavioural economics approach to the decisions farmers make for their operations in the face of risk and uncertainty, looking specifically at their land use and crop insurance choices. After my PhD., I was a postdoctoral researcher in the School of Environment and Natural Resources at the Ohio State University, where I studied farmers’ best management practice (BMP) adoption decisions.
