Bio/Research

Brady Deaton’s research focuses on two key themes: (1) Land and Property and (2) Food and Agricultural Standards. He currently directs the Greenbelt Project whose mission is to support the independent study of the economic effects of Ontario’s recently enacted Greenbelt. (More information about the Greenbelt Project is available at http://www.uoguelph.ca/fare/projects/urban-rural-land-use-greenbelt-project.)

He received his Ph.D. in Agricultural Economics, from Michigan State University, in 2002, and worked as a Post-Doctoral associate from 2002-2004 at the Institute for Food and Agricultural Standards (IFAS) at Michigan State University.

Brady has worked and conducted research in a number of different settings. From 1995-1997 he directed a non-profit project that provided grants to low-income households in rural Kentucky. During this time he also coordinated a project that led to the creation of a county-wide water and sewer district in Letcher County, Kentucky.

From 1993-1995 he was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Lesotho where he lived and worked as a school teacher and a community organizer. In Lesotho he initiated a number of projects including projects that led to the development of water supply infrastructure and the marketing of sheep.
