Research Interests and Experience

The overall goal of my research program is to better understand how economic incentives affect the supply of agricultural products and the interaction between agricultural production and the environment and natural resources. This often leads me to focus within three areas: land use, water, and agricultural policy. Some of my previous research has investigated agricultural supply dynamics, the cost-effectiveness of alternative water conservation policies, the production effects of agricultural domestic support programs, and econometric estimation of dynamic panels.
