About me:  I teach courses in our Agribusiness Management (AG BM) undergraduate major and in our Energy, Environmental, and Food Economics (EEFE) graduate program. Currently, much of my research investigates (i) pricing and marketing behavior by food manufacturing and retailing firms, (ii) food purchasing behavior by households and its link to health, (iii) the impact of the food environment on the overall healthfulness of food purchases, and (iv) the estimation and analysis of household-level food waste. My research often relies on micro-level scanner data that reflect the food purchases of individual households.  Organic food and agriculture is one of my specific interests.

I am on the graduate faculty for he Energy, Environmental, and Food Economics (EEFE) program. See https://aese.psu.edu/graduateprograms/eefe.
