I am a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the Daugherty Water for Food Institute and the National Drought Mitigation Center, University of Nebraska – Lincoln (joint appointment). I conduct applied economic research at the nexus of agricultural production, environmental management and economic development.

I am currently working on issues surrounding groundwater resource management in the High Plains and Northern Plains regions of USA and agricultural markets in Sub Saharan Africa.
