My research is focused on risk and insurance, structural change in agriculture, and applied econometrics. I am particularly interested in the development and application of statistical methods for evaluating relationships between agricultural yields and prices across time and space.
My dissertation looked at the relationship between policy, prices, and risk with regards to farm insurance and Japan's recent trend in farmers exiting the industry.
