Rabobank announces the expansion of its RaboResearch Food & Agribusiness team with the addition of dairy analyst, Aga Dobrowolska Perry.

Aga Dobrowolska Perry is in her final year of completing her doctorate in agricultural and applied economics at the University of Missouri. She currently holds a bachelor’s in agriculture and a master’s in agribusiness and marketing, both from Warsaw University of Life Science in Warsaw, Poland. In addition, Dobrowolska Perry holds a non-degree international master’s in Agroecology. She focused on agricultural policy in the program organized jointly by ISARA (Institut Supérieur de l'Agriculture Rhône-Alpes) – Lyon in France and Norwegian University of Life Science in As, Norway.

Before joining the RaboResearch team, Dobrowolska Perry worked for the European Commission in Brussels, Belgium, and for Farm Accountancy Data Network in Poland. She was also a research assistant at the University of Missouri – Columbia for the first three and a half years of her doctoral program.

“I am really pleased to be a part of Rabobank,” notes Dobrowolska Perry. “It’s great to work alongside so many different people, from farmers here in the U.S., to colleagues in offices across the country and a dedicated team all over the world.”

Dobrowolska Perry joins Rabobank as a part of the RaboResearch Food & Agribusiness team of analysts. In her new role as dairy analyst, she will integrate dairy models to include dynamic forecasting, asset mapping and scenario planning.

“In bringing Aga into our global dairy team we have strengthened our data analytic and research capabilities to the benefit to our North America and wider global dairy team,” notes Senior Dairy Analyst Tom Bailey. “In expanding these activities we are able to enhance our forecasting accuracy, rigor of research, and dairy client support from grass to glass.”
