I’m an economist for the USDA Economic Research Service. My work centers on the economics of innovation, especially as it relates to agriculture and the environment, through a mix of theoretical and empirical work.
I earned my PhD in Economics from Iowa State University, which is also obtained my undergraduate degrees in Physics and Religious Studies. In the intervening years, I lived in England, where I did a Diploma in Economics at the University of Cambridge and an MSc in economics at the London School of Economics. I also spent two years working as a Sub-Saharan Africa Analyst for Business Monitor International.
