Overview

  • In my primary area of research, I develop integrated biological-economic models to recommend optimal strategies aimed at managing plant pests, diseases, and invasive species, over time and space, within and across land parcels. In my secondary area of research, I use supply-chain optimization models and choice experiments to assess the opportunities for and consequences of localizing food supply chains.
