I am an assistant professor in the Department of Agricultural, Food, and Resource Economics at Michigan State University. I received training as an applied economist at the University of California, Davis where I earned a Ph.D. in Agricultural and Resource Economics in 2020. My research focuses primarily on issues related to farm labor, immigration, and agri-food economics. My current research efforts aim to document the prevalence of farm labor shortages and investigate market and policy-based solutions to the problem.
