I am a postdoctoral scholar based in the Agriculture, Forests and Biodiversity program at the The Fletcher School, Tufts University. I currently work on a CCAFS funded project assessing the costs and benefits of integrated and mixed farming systems under a changing climate for smallholders in Mozambique. Other ongoing projects include idenifying climate impacts on tea productivity and plantation workers livelihoods in Assam, India; this is in collaboration with the University of Southampton and the Tocklai Tea Research Institute. Previously I was a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Southampton working on a project assessing the resilience of rice farmers to climatic shocks in Odisha, eastern India. 

Broadly, my research interests span the impacts of climate change and variability on agricultural production in smallholder landscapes and consequences for rural livelihoods and development, food security, and poverty. I use a mixture of household survey data, remote sensing data and agricultural statisitics in my research.
