His primary research interests lie in evaluating the profitability, risk, and regulation of emerging agricultural technologies. The technologies that have received most of his attention include genetically engineered (GE) plant-incorporated protectants like Bt corn and herbicide tolerant crops like Roundup Ready soybeans.
