“I work in Development Economics with a focus on the microeconomics of rural agricultural markets, human capital impacts of public health policies, and food security and welfare impacts of market shocks. My current research looks at the effects of missing information and market power on farmer welfare using a field experiment in India. I am also working on analyzing the unintended consequences of alcohol prohibition policies on child education outcomes. In addition, I am a part of a research project looking at demand and adoption of agricultural technology by farmers and its impact on food security.”

Linlin Fan

ACE 2018 Graduate

“I am an applied economist with specific interests in empirical industrial organization, food economics and policy. The overall objective of my research is to study the interactions between food prices, food retail environment and food demand. My dissertation, in particular, contributes to the rising debate in academic and policy-making circles on how to improve the quality of food purchases and consumption by changing the food geography in the United States. Specifically, it aims to understand the nature, causes, and impact of living in a U.S. food desert (i.e. low-income areas with limited access to supermarkets).”
