Jing Liu is Research Economist at the Department of Agricultural Economics, Purdue University. She received her Ph.D. in Agricultural Economics from Purdue University. She works on issues at the interface between humankind and environment. Her research seeks to improve the understanding of the economic impacts of environmental changes and to better understand our ability to adapt to those impacts. Jing is specialized in using computational and statistical tools to analyze the interactions between food system, land and water. She has also worked across a spectrum of applied economic topics including the economic damages from natural disasters, international trade, as well as health and nutrition. Her recent project investigates alternative polices to abate nitrogen loss exported to the Gulf of Mexico via the Mississippi river basin.
