I serve as the director of the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station, associate dean in the College of Life Sciences and Agriculture, and professor of economics. I am responsible for helping facilitate research, outreach, and engagement success of faculty and staff associated with the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station.
I am an agricultural economist who is interested in agricultural marketing, farm management, policy, and agribusiness risk management. My published and on-going research focuses on a broad range of issues, including crop price dynamics and forecasting, market valuation of food quality characteristics, management of invasive species and pests, farm policy analysis, crop insurance, fertilizer market dynamics, wine pricing, co-operatives, among others. I also work with interdisciplinary teams of scientists to analyze the agronomic and economic effectiveness of alternative cropping systems, trade-offs of alternative soil management strategies, and cover crops.
