Nahian Bin Khaled

Research and Policy Enthusiast

Hi! I am a graduate student and a Graduate Research Assistant in the Department of Agriculture, Food and Resource Economics (AFRE) Ph.D. program at Michigan State University. The project I am working on aims to provide learning and analytical support to the U.S. government’s Feed the Future activities in Kenya and East Africa (KEA) region implemented under the auspices of USAID country and regional offices. Previously, I worked at 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 and an aspiring writer. I write blogs and newspaper articles and make videos on political-economic issues regularly. I am a proficient user of Bangla and English with a beginner’s capacity in the French language. You can call me Nahian.
