Welcome

Hi – thanks for visiting.  I am a Professor at Tufts University, in the Friedman School of Nutrition with a secondary appointment in the Department of Economics.  Timeline of links below summarize recent work, or click links for publications and funding, music playlists, and my school page. Background is described in my AAEA Fellow’s bio and, more colorfully, in my ANH career journey.

News, photos and outreach are on twitter, with occasional longer posts on my food economics teaching blog, and at a separate site for my project on Food Prices for Nutrition.
