I am an assistant professor of Agricultural and Consumer Economics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I received my PhD from MIT in 2005 and then spent 5 years as an assistant professor at the University of Maryland. I started at the University of Illinois in 2010. My research focuses on food production and policy.
