Dr. Juan Sesmero holds a PhD in Agricultural Economics from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. Juan's research and teaching activities are focused primarily on the economics of competition in agricultural markets, the economics of agricultural irrigation, and adaptation to and impact of climate change in agriculture. Juan's research received support from USDA-NIFA and the National Science Foundation. Most prominently, he is currently leading a USDA-NIFA (Markets and Trade) funded project that integrates theory, laboratory experiments, and econometrics to advance identification of structural parameters when the mode of competition among firms is uncertain.
