Summary Academic Interest: 

My research explores the impact of climate change on smallholder farmers and farming systems, assessing the vulnerability of agricultural systems and communities at different scales with the goal of elucidating adaptive strategies. I’m most interested in refining and utilizing climate resilience evaluation techniques and implementing farmer-friendly tools in order to co-asses the vulnerability of whole-systems in bioregions of the United States, Latin America and India. By analyzing the climate change adaptation strategies of small-scale farmers and subsistence farmers, I hope to better illustrate the impact and potential solutions of climate change on agriculture and on global food systems. Smallholder and indigenous farmers are often left out of political practice, thus marginalizing key stakeholders in the implementation of climate change adaptation strategies.
