Carla De Simone

  I graduated in economics and completed my formal education with a PhD with focus in agricultural and forestry sciences in 2014, both at National University of La Plata (Buenos Aires, Argentina). I have 14 years of experience in management and coordination positions. I recently worked as a cabinet staff with the rank of provincial director in the Ministry of Agroindustry of the Province of Buenos Aires, where I was previously provincial director of bioeconomy and rural development. I have 19 years of experience working at different levels of government, in institutions related to the agricultural, food and agro-industrial sector, both in the professional and academic fields. For 23 years I have been a university professor in the area of economics and management of agricultural enterprises, carrying out research, extension and training of human resources, in the areas of agricultural policies and development, production and supply chain in agricultural products, especially in the topic of value addition within the territories. I have advanced in my teaching career, from student assistant to adjunct  professor, a position I currently hold at National University Arturo Jauretche (Buenos Aires, Argentina).
