He received his Ph.D. in Agricultural Economics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Rejesus has an active research and extension program that focuses on applied production economics, with special emphasis on agricultural policies related to risk management (e.g., crop insurance and other safety-net policies for farmers) and economic impact assessment of agricultural technologies.
