Prof. Karl Rich

I joined Oklahoma State University (OSU) in July 2021 after 16 years of working overseas travelling to 87 countries, with applied research and/or teaching experience in over 30 of these countries and long-term residence in nine. Most recently I was at the International Livestock Research Institute’s (ILRI) West Africa Regional Office in Dakar, Senegal. At ILRI, leading a multidisciplinary team conducting applied research that informed livestock sector strategy and investment options in the developing world.
I am the Director of the Master of International Agriculture Program (MIAP) in the Ferguson College of Agriculture and a Professor of Agricultural Economics at Oklahoma State University. While trained as an agricultural economist, the research has cut across disciplinary boundaries, integrating agricultural and livestock policy analysis, global agribusiness issues, animal and aquatic health, and methods development.
