My research focuses on the interaction between agricultural production and its environment, aiming to understand and quantify 1) agriculture’s impact on land use, water use, water quality, and biodiversity, and 2) how agricultural production is affected by farmers’ behaviors, public policies, technological advances, and climate change. I am also interested in examining the role of ambiguity preferences in people’s decision making.
