My research focus is mainly exploring land use for sustainable agriculture, perennial grain systems, and human livelihoods for Africa.

Recent Grants: “I received a student imagery Grant from Digital Globe Foundation this past May 2017 for multispectral and panchromatic images for one research site on smallholder farming in Malawi. Thanks to these satellite imagery from @DigitalGlobeFDN, using several pre-processing and enhancement techniques, I am able to judiciously explore the diverse landscape and extract features of interest for further investigation in my research.”
