I am a PhD fellow at the Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management, University of Copenhagen in Denmark. My PhD project aims to uncover linkages between forests and rural people’s dietary quality in Malawi.
I have a strong passion for strengthening the link between food security policy and agriculture research to improve our ecologically unsustainable and socially inequitable food system. Throughout my studies and professional experiences, I have had the chance to conduct fieldwork in many different countries, including Malawi, India, Norway, France, Guatemala, and Malaysia.
