My field is economic regulation and food economics. More specifically, my work includes 1) Economic analyses of the role of the public sector in optimal regulation of food production and consumption 2) Valuation of non-market goods (such as food safety and quality, animal welfare, environmental impacts) and assessing consumers’ trade offs between different types of risks 3) Optimal decision making for decision makers and consumers in complex settings including uncertainty, irreversibility and asymmetric information.
