I am a PhD Candidate in Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of California, Davis, (graduating June 2014) and a collaborator with the International Food Policy Research Institute.

Anil - Agricultural, USA

I currently conduct research on the economics of developing countries with a focus on agricultural technology adoption. During a recent study on demand for water-conserving technologies by poor farmers in India, I designed and implemented an electronic household-plot level survey of over 500 farmers and monitored and analyzed the final data for publication. I am now evaluating how labor market policies interact with the economic conditions of poor farmers leading to adoption of labor-saving technologies, and I also plan to model and empirically test the public benefits of private resource-conserving technology adoption, in order to help better understand rural poverty alleviation in the context of climate change adaptation. Other topics of interest within development include poverty dynamics, nutrition and gender.
