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. His applied research program in crop insurance covers both compliance issues (i.e., fraud prevention) and topics related to premium rate-setting. He also has extensive experience evaluating economic impacts of various agricultural technologies, policies, and programs (in the US and other countries).
