About Me

Welcome to my website! I am a PhD candidate in the Agricultural, Food, and Resource Economics Department at Michigan State University. I enjoy using applied econometrics to analyze household behavior and decision-making.

For my dissertation research, I programmed two large scale, tablet-based surveys with pre-populated data in Rwanda and Tanzania. I am currently using that data to study the consistency of reduced form tests of households' agricultural production decisions; how in-utero rainfall impacts child growth; and, how farmers' personalities influence households' technology adoption decisions.
