Research statement

The overall aim of my research is to create new valuable knowledge in the fields of agriculture, agribusiness and society in general and on the individual level in particular. My two doctoral degrees in agriculture and economics place me at the interface between agriculture and economics which is especially helpful for interdisciplinary research topics like digitalization and sustainability.
