Biography/ BackgroundIn August 2006, I moved to Australia from Colorado in the U.S. to join the University of Adelaide, School of Agriculture, Food and Wine where I am a Lecturer in the Agri-Food and Wine Business discipline. I am very passionate about working with agricultural producers and industry to explore marketing alternatives for their agricultural and food products.
Prior to joining the University of Adelaide Faculty I was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at Colorado State University (CSU) located in Fort Collins, CO USA. My previous research focused on consumer preferences for food attributes such as country-of-origin and the value of traceability systems in the food and agricultural value chain. While at CSU I was very involved in outreach work with agricultural producers, industry and policy makers. This included included workshops on agribusiness marketing and management. I have taught courses in agricultural production economics, agricultural marketing, agricultural policy and integrated resource management.
Prior to working at CSU, I was a USDA National Needs Agribusiness Fellow at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, USA where I received my Ph.D. in Agricultural Economics in 2001. I also earned a B.S. in Animal Science and M.S. in Economics from South Dakota State University. I was raised on a cattle and crop farm/ranch in South Dakota, USA.
