I am a Ph.D. student in Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics at Ohio State University. I am currently a Research Assistant for the Farm Income Enhancement Program.

My research interests include farm size inequality, agricultural household welfare, and agricultural baseline projections. One of my working papers evaluates the impacts of environmental conservation policy on the farmer’s productivity and land conflicts between the farmers and squatters in Brazil. Another paper is exploring how the profusion of new farm technologies is changing the farm size distribution and affecting inequality among farmers in India. I am also working on the viability of the US baselines projections under a number of policy assumptions.

In addition to my research activities, I made outreach contributions to the OSU Farm Science Review 2021. I also held multiple teaching assignments as a teaching assistant and lab instructor. Most recently, I was the lab instructor for the graduate course Applied Quantitative Methods III (AEDECON 6130) in Spring 2021 and the first-year Ph.D. econometrics sequence Advanced Quantitative Methods I & II in Fall 2020.
