Many of you have already heard the news; my family and I moved to Purdue and West Lafayette IN this summer. I’m now in the Agricultural Economics department at Purdue as Associate Professor and Clearing Corporation Chair of Food and Agricultural Marketing. Today marks one month on the job, in fact, and am so excited to be here! I’m also very grateful to the Clearing Corporation Charitable Foundation for establishing this endowment; looking forward to pushing agricultural markets research forward.
I’m looking forward to good times with new colleagues and friends as well!
I’m already missing old friends and colleagues at Illinois, though. I had 10 great years there and I can’t imagine a better place to start a career.
