Research interests

My research interests revolve around the interplay of nature and society and the implications of such relationships at multiple levels. I enjoy multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research. Broadly, food security discourses, natural resource governance, land use and land cover dynamics, remote sensing and geospatial analysis are areas of great interest to me.
