Assistant Professor

Nathan Palardy is an assistant professor with an Extension and Research appointment focused on state government and local policy. 

Palardy completed the Ph.D program in Agricultural and Resource Economics at Colorado State University in 2022 shortly before joining the University of Florida. He also holds an M.S. in Forest Resources from University of Georgia, a B.S. in Natural Resources, Recreation and Tourism from University of Georgia and a B.A. in Latin American and Caribbean Studies from University of Georgia.

Palardy’s research interests lie at the intersection of policy and regional economics. He is broadly interested in engaged scholarship that supports policymakers and businesses to achieve greater economic resilience, sustainable economic development, less social and spatial inequality, and a strong sense of community.

His dissertation research used consumer foot traffic data to investigate how allowing grocery and convenience stores to sell full-strength beer changes consumer behavior and impacts craft breweries and the liquor store sector. While at Colorado State University, Dr. Palardy also helped facilitate the Liquid Arts Research Forum, which brought together academics and industry personnel to promote collaborative research.
