Yan (Sophie) Xu

Ph.D. Candidate in Agricultural and Resource Economics

University of California, Davis


My main fields of specialization are demand analysis, industry organization, and applied econometrics.

My current research falls into two main categories: consumer demand analysis and supply chain design.

I am also a member of the Food Loss and Waste Collaborative at the University of California, Davis.

In my free time, I enjoy growing organic vegetables and interviewing farmers to learn from their farming experience.
