Research Synopsis:

Doctoral candidate in the Department of Geography, Environment, and Spatial Sciences and graduate research assistant at the Center for Global Change and Earth Observations at Michigan State University. Research interests include environmental niche modeling and geovisualization for creating and transmitting scientific knowledge. Current research foci: (i) locating global marginal agricultural lands, (ii) identifying the geographic scaling potential of sustainable agriculture technologies, and (iii) leveraging remote sensing information for precision agriculture across space and time scales, including smallholder farming contexts. Much of this research centers on Malawi and Sub-Saharan Africa; however, the methodologies devised have been adapted into generalizable, multi-scalar models that provide support across geographies and crops.
