Di Fang to serve as Associate Editor for The American Journal of Agricultural Economics

Di Fang, associate professor of Food and Resource Economics at the University of Florida, has been appointed to serve a four-year term as associate editor for the American Journal of Agricultural Economics (AJAE) starting in January 2024.

AJAE is one of three peer-reviewed journals published by the Agricultural & Applied Economics Association (AAEA) and serves as a platform for sharing innovative and rigorous scholarly work within the field of economics. Articles featured in AJAE explore a diverse range of topics, including agriculture, natural resources, environmental issues and international community development.  

This highly respected journal is one of the top journals in the field of agricultural economics. 

Fang, who joined the University of Florida in 2022, focuses much of her research on exploring the intersections between nutrition, environment, and health using the lens of applied economics. She also currently chairs AAEA’s Committee on Women in Agricultural Economics and is a member of the American Society of Health Economists’ Communications Committee.  

As an associate editor for the American Journal of Agricultural Economics, Fang will review submitted manuscripts for publication and serve on the committee that selects the annual “Best AJAE Article of the Year.”  

She will join several of our other faculty members in this role, Jaclyn Kropp, Conner Mullally and Kelly Grogan, who are also currently serving as associate editors. In addition, Fang will serve as the managing editor for the Agricultural and Resource Economics Review (ARER). 

“Being chosen as an associate editor for AJAE is a true honor. It is the flagship journal for agricultural economics, and many of us aspired to publish in AJAE during our grad school days,” Fang said. “I’m excited to join the many excellent scholars on the editorial board in serving both the journal and the discipline.”
