My research is focused on land use transitions, natural resource management, food security and climate change adaptation and mitigation in the Global South. I am particularly interested in understanding causes of land use changes and how they affect socio-economic and environmental systems. My recent research has focused on effects of land use changes on carbon storage in soil and vegetation, on soil fertility management in small scale farming systems and on identifying sustainable intensification pathways for these systems. My regional focus is Southeast Asia, but I have also worked in East Africa, West Africa and in the Pacific.
