I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Geography, Environment & Society and a doctoral fellow at the Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility. My research focuses on examining and advancing understanding of human-environment interactions in an era of global environmental change. My doctoral work analyzes the complex relationships among agricultural production, climate variability, food security and nutrition in Ethiopia. I examine how household-level food (in)security interacts with children’s nutritional outcomes and relates to households’ agricultural activities in the context of climate variability. My interests include population studies, spatial analysis and statistics, climate change, food security, GIS, and remote sensing.
