PhD in Agricultural Economics, MSc in Agricultural Development, BSc in Agricultural Economics
I am an agricultural economist with about 10 years of international development research experience. I joined CABI’s Swiss centre as a socio-economist in January 2018. My role involves leading and conducting research to assess the social and economic impacts of CABI’s projects and programmes.
My main areas of interest and expertise include; impact assessment, food security, climate change resilience and adaptation, linking smallholders to high-value markets, farmer innovations and adoption of agricultural technologies.
Prior to joining CABI, I worked for three years as a senior researcher at the Center for Development Research (ZEF), University of Bonn in Germany. Whilst there I mentored PhD students and was responsible for research activities related to farmer-generated innovations and economic assessment of climate risks.
My work cuts across a number of CABI’s projects and programmes. Currently, I am mainly involved in Plantwise and Action on Invasives.
CABI’s Swiss centre carries out applied scientific research and undertakes consultancy projects. Located in Delémont in the Canton of Jura, it is the home base for experts and students from several different countries where they research and apply their knowledge.
