DABE is excited to welcome Dr. Dawn Thilmany, professor of agricultural economics at Colorado State University and co-director of the Regional Economic Development Institute. Professor Thilmany will present an overview of key food market disruptions during the COVID pandemic, with a deeper dive into the unique impacts on small and differentiated local and regional food market channels.

Professor Thilmany specializes in rural economic development and focuses on opportunities related to value-added food market supply chains, as well as applied research on food market analysis and consumer behavior. Her work on agricultural diversification also includes work with agritourism and entrepreneurship in Colorado and the Western United States. She is currently the president of the Ag and Applied Economics Association and has held several leadership positions with national ag, food, and regional economic associations. She has been a visiting scholar and collaborated with several USDA agencies, including a current project focused on food supply chains during COVID with the Ag Marketing Service. In addition to her other roles, Professor Thilmany is the Director of Engaged Research at CSU.
