Assistant Professor, Department of Agricultural Economics, Purdue University

Nathanael Thompson

Nathan Thompson joined the department in February 2016 after completing his PhD in Agricultural Economics at Oklahoma State University. His research and extension programs will focus primarily in the areas of production economics and farm management, with a specific emphasis on risk management as it pertains to farm-level decision making. Nathan has a strong interest in interdisciplinary, applied research with practical implications for producers and other relevant stakeholders. Some of his previous work has involved determining the economic feasibility of alternative technologies and production practices for both crop and livestock producers.
