Welcome! I am a PhD in Economics from Iowa Sate University
My research interests are in Agricultural Economics, Development Economics, and Applied Econometrics. My dissertation focuses on issues related to the global agricultural food production, land use, and price transmission.
Analyzing country-specific crop production and price data using recently developed micro- and -macro econometric methods (e.g., Generalized Methods of Moments and Mean Group Estimators), my research provides new perspectives on supply response of agricultural crops for all countries around the globe. I am particularly interested in using applied economic theory and econometric methods (time-series, micro and macro panel estimators) to address questions and methodological challenges relating to analysis of agricultural food production, food prices, energy prices, price transmission, food security, and poverty, among many other issues.
