Research

  • The Degradation of Common Pasturelands in Matata, Rajasthan: As a volunteer researcher for the Indian service organization Seva Mandir, I interviewed the residents of the tribal village of Matata in order to ascertain the causes and implications of the decrease in value and function of the community's shared cropland. My proposed solutions were implemented to resolve the communications breakdowns and governmental mismanagement that had originally contributed to the degradation of those communal pasturelands., August 2013 - December 2013
