Kyle Emerick received his PhD 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.
