Research Focus: My research interests lie in the environmental and agrarian history of Africa. Of particular interest is how societies have interacted with their ever-changing environment over time, and the impact of ecological and economic change on livelihoods, especially those who rely on agriculture. I am also interested in the political economy of development in developing countries.
