CRB_1592I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Agricultural, Food, and Resource Economics Department at Michigan State University and on the job market this year.

My dissertation research applies dynamic tools in two different contexts. In my first and second essay, I study the impact of high feed costs, increased energy consumption, and volatile energy consumption on the profitability and decision making of Nigerian poultry farmers using a dynamic programming approach. In my third dissertation essay, I examine income dynamics of subpopulations in the United States by applying the poverty trap theory to study female and black headed households. My essays are a combination of my fields: development economics and agribusiness management.

I’ve accepted an offer from the Economic Research Service (ERS) and I am not longer on the job market.
