Welcome to my website!
I am an Assistant Professor and Extension Economist in the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, SC Johnson College of Business at Cornell University. My research seeks to better understand U.S. farmland market, agricultural water conservation and Chinese agriculture.
I am currently an Associate Editor of American Journal of Agricultural Economics as well as the Journal of Soil and Water Conservation. I am also Faculty Affiliate at Cornell Center for China Economic Research (CICER), Faculty Fellow at Cornell Atkinson Center for Sustainability, and and a 2023-2025 Fellow with the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF).
Prior to joining Cornell, I was a tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Economics and the Center for Agricultural and Rural Development (CARD) at Iowa State University. I obtained my Ph.D. in Agricultural, Environmental and Development Economics from the Ohio State University in 2015.
