Julian Binfield is responsible for the co-ordination of FAPRI-MU’s international projects.

Other international projects include the collaboration with the Bureau for Food and Agricultural Policy (BFAP) at the University of Pretoria, South Africa, and with the Center for Agricultural Policy Analysis (CAPA) at the Institute of Agricultural Economics in Bulgaria.

Prior to joining FAPRI-MU in 2001, Julian spent four years working at Teagasc in Dublin, Ireland, where he was responsible for the construction of an econometric model of the livestock sector. He has a bachelor’s degree in Economics and Agricultural Economics from the University of Manchester, a master’s degree in Agricultural Economics from the University of Reading, and a Ph.D. in Agricultural Economics from the University of Missouri.
