Jon Einar Flatnes: The Ohio State University

March 6, 2015

Jon Einar Flatnes has accepted a position as an assistant professor in the Department of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics at The Ohio State University. Flatnes' research employs a combination of theoretical, experimental and empirical methods to study questions related to optimal design of financial contracts for smallholder farmers in developing countries. In particular, his dissertation studies the welfare implications of two innovative financial contracts, specifically a joint liability group lending contract with a collateral requirement, and an index insurance contract based on remote sensing data. Flatnes' dissertation committee consists of Michael Carter (Chair), Stephen Boucher, and Travis Lybbert.
