Research Interests

My current research explores the integration of farmers' preferences and requirements in the promotion and adoption of environmentally-friendly agricultural practices within the Sahel region. I am specifically concentrating my work on Agroforestry in the context of Senegal and collected cross sectional household level data to investigate related issues.

Other than my current research, I am also super interested in migration, cultural studies, political ecology (especially feminist political ecology), labor economics, tourism and many other topics.
