Starting from December 2021, I am a postdoc in the Tufan Lab at the Cornell University with the Innovation Lab for Crop Improvement. Previously, I was a postdoc in the Institute of Life Sciences at the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies in Pisa (Italy) with the Crops Genetics Lab.  

My research interests are agricultural, Sub-Saharan and development economics. I work on participatory research approaches and integrating local ecological knowledge in plant breeding and agronomy.  I am currently specializing in ethnobiology.

Field work: Rwanda (2022), Mozambique (2021), Italy (2021), Ethiopia (2019), Tanzania (2018)
