I am interested in investigating the impacts of environmental programs and environmental changes on different human wellbeing and environmental outcomes. I have looked at the impacts of community forest management and protected areas on deforestation, economic, and subjective human well-being in Madagascar. I have also examined the links between forests, child nutrition, and health in low and middle-income countries. I have explored links between fisheries, child nutrition and child development in the areas around Lake Victoria, Kenya. I currently investigate the impacts of marine conservation on food and nutrition security.
