I work on a wide-ranging consortium of agribusiness marketing issues, though I am most at home with the questions many agricultural economists might consider too “weird.”  I do my best to stay ahead of the curve, leading me into projects on “niche” products ranging from hops and hemp to cherries and chestnuts.

Below are some links to some of my work on agribusiness marketing issues:
