Evidence of Excellence

Michelle Segovia, assistant professor of agricultural and applied economics, has been selected to participate in two opportunities this summer. The Agricultural and Applied Economics Association (AAEA) chose her to attend the Early Career Mentoring Workshop, a two-day event scheduled to follow the AAEA annual meeting and intended for professionals who have no more than five years of professional experience. Workshop participants will learn strategies to achieve research and teaching success, and they’ll benefit from working with mentors to develop their research programs and overall careers. Segovia also has been accepted to attend the 2019 Summer Institute on Bounded Rationality held this month in Berlin, Germany. Hosted at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, the institute will introduce participants to bounded rationality, which suggests people make decisions given constrained time, information or computational power, and it will focus in particular on bounded rationality in a digital world.
