Email Address: 

Kurt Waldman is a visiting postdoctoral research fellow from the Ostrom Workshop at Indiana University Bloomington. Kurt's research examines judgment and decision making related to food, agriculture, and the environment. At the Ostrom Workshop, he is part of an interdisciplinary team investigating the relationship between food security and climate change in arid regions of Africa. Current and future publications consider the perceptions and heuristics that shape farmers' decisions in the face of climate-related uncertainty, combining both social and environmental data. These projects aim to inform and improve agricultural policy for small farmers in developing countries. Kurt earned an MS in Applied Economics from Cornell University and a PhD in Food and Agricultural Policy from Michigan State University.
