Biography

Kyle Emerick received his Ph.D. in Agricultural and Resource Economics from UC Berkeley in 2014. His research is in development economics – with a particular focus on the economics of agricultural development. His work has included studies on the effects of risk-reducing technologies on the decisions of poor farmers in rural India, the efficiency of informal seed exchanges between Indian farmers, and the effects of more secure property rights on labor reallocation in Mexico. His studies rely on both field experiments and observational data.
