Food and Resource Economics
In this research area, you will explore the interface between food production and the environment. This includes applying economic analysis to advance understanding of the production and distribution of food, and the conservation and exploitation of natural resources. Using a data intensive approach, focus on understanding causal relationships in an increasingly large and complex world and engage in economic analysis of government policy, including measurement of their efficiency and distributional impacts.
