Headshot of Charles Nicholson
I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. My work focuses on the analysis of dairy markets, policy and supply chains and is supported by the UW Dairy Innovation Hub. I teach undergraduate courses on food systems and supply chains. I also maintain an affiliation with the School of Integrative Plant Science at Cornell University and contribute to research on the economics and environmental impacts of controlled-environment agriculture (greenhouses, vertical farms). I also collaborate with interdisciplinary teams doing research on food security in low-income countries. I previously worked with the Nijmegen School of Management in the Netherlands, the Smeal College of Business at Penn State University and the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University.
