Ashok Mishra joined the W. P. Carey School of Business as a professor of agribusiness in 2015.
Professor Mishra’s research interests lie in food policy and focuses on the economic performance of global agribusiness as a result of production efficiency, mergers and acquisitions, and volatile commodity prices.
