Agricultural and Applied Economics Association picks 2023 fellows

The Agricultural and Applied Economics Association has chosen six economists for its class of 2023 fellows.

They will receive their awards in July at the AAEA’s annual meeting, which is being held in Washington D.C.

Bellemare is a professor at the University of Minnesota, whose work straddles agricultural economics, food policy and development economics.

Keith Fuglie works at the United States Department of Agriculture, where his research focuses on the economics of agricultural technical change, science policy and productivity growth.

Elena Irwin is Distinguished Professor of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences in Economics and Sustainability at Ohio State University, while David Pannell is Professor of Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of Western Australia.

Dawn Thilmany is a professor at Colorado State University and Holly Wang is a professor at Purdue University’s Department of Agricultural Economics.
