Assistant Professor

Personal Information

Christine Carroll is a Seattle-area native who earned her bachelor’s degree in economics at Arizona State University and a PhD in agricultural economics at UC Davis. Her doctoral dissertation looked for economically viable control options for Verticillium wilt in lettuce crops in Monterey and the Salinas Valley. That research project, and the collaboration with growers, plant pathologists, and other disciplines, got her hooked on agricultural economics. Carroll joined the College of Agriculture in part because of the interdisciplinary structure of the college, which she sees as an opportunity build cross-disciplinary collaborations. She and her husband, Dorsey, relocated to Chico from Ohio. They enjoy the climate in Northern California, as well as the access to outdoor activities such as road biking and skiing.
