About

Nicholas Minot is a Senior Research Fellow in the Markets, Trade and Institutions Division. Since joining IFPRI in 1997 as a Post-Doctoral Fellow, he has carried out research on the agricultural market reform in Africa, fertilizer policy, fruit and vegetable markets, income diversification, and spatial patterns in poverty. He is the leader of a research program on strategies for promoting the participation of small farmers in high-value agricultural commodity supply chains.

He is currently working on projects on horticultural marketing in Indonesia, diversification in Bhutan, staple-crop marketing in eastern and southern Africa, and linking farmers to markets in Ghana. He is currently outposted to Kampala, Uganda.

Before joining IFPRI, he taught at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign and worked as a policy adviser in Zimbabwe and as a survey analyst in Rwanda. He also carried out research on agricultural marketing in Bolivia, Cameroon, and Peru, on small enterprises in Laos, and on household budgets in Paraguay. He received his Ph.D. and M.S. in agricultural economics from Michigan State University and his B.A. in international development from Brown University.
