The department of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics (AEDE) is excited to welcome our new faculty member, Assistant Professor Chen-Ti Chen.
Dr. Chen is an applied economist who addresses issues at the intersection of agricultural and environmental economics. He received his undergraduate degree in Agricultural Economics from National Taiwan University, his master's in Agricultural and Resource Economics from UC Davis, and Ph.D. from Iowa State. Dr. Chen was a postdoctoral research associate at Cornell University prior to joining AEDE.
Dr. Chen's research often uses spatially explicit data (e.g., citizen science projects and remote sensing products) and interdisciplinary collaborations to study the economics of agricultural production. Some ongoing projects include evaluating the effectiveness of programs to reduce pollution from livestock production and the Conversation Reserve Program in supporting ecosystem services. During his Ph.D., Dr. Chen supported Iowa agriculture with publications and outreach about trade and environmental issues important to Iowa commodity groups.
Dr. Chen is looking forward to developing teaching, research, and extension program that addresses agricultural economics and agribusiness issues critical to Ohio related to the production and distribution of food and agricultural commodities through sustainable means.
Welcome to AEDE, Dr. Chen!
