Teaching and Research Interests

Dr. Aradhyula maintains broad interests in agricultural economics and economics. Major fields include quantitative policy analysis, applied econometric and time series methods, production economics, and risk and uncertainty.

Satheesh Aradhyula’s current research focuses on using advanced econometric techniques for analyzing consumer behavior (e.g., preferences for various food attributes), producer behavior (e.g., adoption of agricultural technology involving uncertainty), and labor markets (e.g., effects of the SB1070 law on labor markets). He is also working on using GARCH models and mixed distributions for modeling commodity prices and crop yields. Professor Aradhyula currently teaches econometrics, statistical methods, and data analytics at graduate and undergraduate levels. In the past, Dr. Aradhyula served as co-editor of the Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics.
