Research profile

Previously I studied the feasibility for the establishment and development of plantation crops (oil palm, bamboo and coconut) and their sustainable production in Africa. My research currently focuses on evaluation of climate adaptation options to address food insecurity in the Sudan Savanna of West Africa. In addition I am interested in using crop models to study climate change adaptations.
