Jarrett Hart

Jarrett Hart is a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics of the University of California, Davis, where he completed his Ph.D. in 2019.
Dr. Hart is currently researching cannabis demand, focusing on estimating consumption in the United States and the size of the legal and illegal markets in California. As a postdoctoral scholar, he has also researched the implications of Proposition 12 for the veal and egg industry, and the environmental and economic consequences of using almond, beer, and wine by-products as dairy feed.
Dr. Hart has also studied and published research related to the economics of beer and wine. His dissertation focused on the impact of brewery acquisitions on consumer preferences for craft and local beer, as well as evolving alcohol consumption patterns and proper techniques to derive policy relevant elasticities. He has also collaborated with a large California winery to determine the cost of Brettanomyces—the top cause of spoilage in red wine—for wineries with differing characteristics and treatment methods.
When he’s not researching cannabis, Dr. Hart is probably bringing his dog Nova with him to play frisbee golf or to do some hands-on research at a craft brewery.
