University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Dr. Hope Michelson is Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She studies the dynamics of poverty and security in low-income countries where market failures are a fact of life. One of her key subjects is the interaction of international development efforts with local and large-scale agribusiness. She investigates how small farmers respond to the expansion of international supply chains, the sourcing of agricultural products, and the buying and selling of agricultural inputs.
