Research Interests

My research interests in U.S. and African agriculture sit at the intersection of agroecology, development geography, and political ecology. I currently study adoption and diffusion of agricultural innovations, differentiated vulnerabilities to environmental change, and farmer responses to economic and climate stress in Senegal, including migration and dryland soil and water management.

Major advisor: Carol Shennan
