“Prior to participating in the ACES Global Academy, I did not have an international component to my research portfolio, so the professional development activities were useful to me. The opportunity to go to India, of course, was a highlight because I wanted to learn about their commodity markets. Meeting key academicians and industry professionals provided invaluable perspective that has guided my research efforts ever since.” Dr. Mindy Mallory, Agricultural and Consumer Economics
