Personal profile


My research focuses on issues at the intersection of development economics and natural resources, including the impacts of climate change and related adaptation measures. Currently, I am working on two main projects focused on agricultural systems in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, which examine the role of irrigation technologies and infrastructure investments on agricultural water security and rural livelihoods in these regions.
