Academic Focus: Agricultural Development and Markets
Hometown: Ouagadougou/Burkina Faso
Advisor: John Kerr
My research interests range from understanding smallholder farmers’ behavior to testing mechanisms which can increase productivity along the value chain. This means that I also explore risk management strategies as well as adaptive technologies and institutions capable to build resilient and sustainable rural farming communities exposed to climate and price shocks.
Prior to joining CSUS, I earned a Master’s in Agricultural, Food and Resource Economics from Michigan State University.
