Christine Sauer

Agricultural Economist


I just received my PhD in Agricultural, Food, and Resource Economics from Michigan State University with areas of specialization in Food and Agricultural Economics, Food System Transformation, and Agricultural Development. My research interests center on the rapidly changing agrifood system in developing countries, and particularly the rise in consumption of processed food. To date my research has focused on Tanzania, and in the process I have made several trips to Tanzania to conduct research with colleagues at the Sokoine University of Agriculture and in the USAID Feed the Future Sera Bora project. I enjoy research, outreach, and travel, and was fortunate enough to have had an abundance of all three during my time at MSU.
