Anwar Naseem



I am an assistant professor of agricultural economics in the Department of Natural Resource Sciences, McGill University. I specialize in the economics of science and technology, with special interest in understanding the impact and regulation of agricultural biotechnology, intellectual property rights, and science policy in developing countries.  My research has been supported by Genome Canada, SSHRC, USDA/ERS and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. I am a member of Canadian Agricultural Innovation Research Network (CAIRN) and International Consortium on Applied Bioeconomy Research (ICABR). I teach graduate and undergraduate courses in economics of agricultural development, micro- and macro-economics and cost-benefit analysis.  Before coming to McGill, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at International Food Policy Research Institue (IFPRI) based in Ethiopia and a Research Associate at Rutgers University. I earned my Ph.D. (2002) from Michigan State University.
