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 programming tools in two different contexts. In my first and second essay, I study the impact of high feed and energy costs 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 will be attending AEA this coming January.
