My research interests lie in the field of sustainable agriculture and conservation. In my DPhil project I am addressing the question of how we can feed the world’s population while safeguarding the environment. My fieldwork focusses on smallholder farming communities in Papua New Guinea. My hope is that by the end of the project I may have some suggestions for policies that could promote sustainable agriculture by smallholder farmers in the developing world.
