Uris earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of the Philippines at Los Baños. After a short stint in the private sector, he pursued his master’s and doctorate in agricultural economics, both from Purdue University. He spent a year and a half as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Center for Global Trade Analysis. He co-developed the Simplified International Model of agricultural Prices, Land use and the Environment (SIMPLE), a computational economic model of global agriculture which he extensively use in his research as well as co-authored a textbook on global food sustainability. Uris’ research interests are on the broad issues surrounding the global farm-food-environment nexus, local-global telecoupling and on computational economic modelling.
