How can humans and the ecosystems we depend on thrive in a changing climate?
I am interested in how humans are adapting and transforming current systems of food production, water supply and conservation to meet their needs and the needs of future generations. These local innovations are key for understanding how large-scale transformations to a more sustainable society may be possible. While my projects often focus on specific places and issues, I believe these small-scale innovations contribute to our broader understanding of solutions that could scale up.
