Prof. Gerald E Shively
Prof. Gerald Shively is the Associate Head of Department of Agricultural Economics, Purdue University. Working in collaboration with a worldwide network of students and colleagues, I conduct research on a wide range of topics related to poverty, economic development and the environment in developing regions of the world. My research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, USAID, the Ford Foundation, and The World Bank. Much of my research focuses on household land and labor allocation in marginally productive agricultural areas. I am keenly interested in nutrition and health, and methods to connect data on weather and climate, including remotely-sensed satellite data, to observational data on economic behaviors and outcomes on the ground. My goal is to help inform policies to make global food production more environmentally sustainable. I study the interactions between poverty and environmental degradation so as to help eliminate both. During the 2016/17 academic year I will be spending a portion of my time as a Faculty Fellow in the Purdue Policy Research Institute. He was honoured as a distinguished Honorary Fellow of AAAE in 2016, during the Association's 5th AAAE Conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Read more
