I am a Senior Lecturer of Economics at the University of Sydney. My research interests primarily revolve around commodity markets and price analysis. Specifically, I study the role of climatic factors on commodity price dynamics, and I examine the relationship between conflict and prices. My research has been published in leading field and interdisciplinary journals such as American Journal of Agricultural Economics, Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, Health Economics,World Development, and Global Environmental Change, among others. I currently serve as a co-editor of Food Policy.
