Nahian Bin Khaled

Research and Policy Enthusiast

Hi! I am a Ph.D. student and a Graduate Research Assistant in the Department of Agricultural, Food and Resource Economics (AFRE) at Michigan State University. My research focuses on critical development issues, including poverty, technology adoption, social networks, poverty, and agricultural value chains in developing countries such as Bangladesh, Tanzania and Kenya. I have published collaborative research works in reputable field journals. Before starting my graduate studies, I worked at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) in Bangladesh for three and a half years.

I am an economics research enthusiast. I write blogs and newspaper articles and make videos on political-economic issues. Proficient in both Bangla and English, I have a beginner’s understanding of the French language. You can call me Nahian.
