I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Food Science with emphasis in agriculture. My first research projects were related to agricultural labor. I conducted research on Hispanic labor in the U.S. and rural labor in China. I also conducted research on topics related to environmental and resource economics including non-market valuation of ground water and biodiversity conservation.

My latest projects are related to Food Policy and Consumer Demand.
