Agronomist researcher

I am a researcher in natural resources management and the agronomy of tropical cropping systems. In the past 25 years, I worked on land use modelling, water use efficiency and fertilizer use efficiency of rice systems, land and water management, and the impacts of climate change on crop production. I have coordinated a vegetable research and capacity building program in Indonesia and a project in Bangladesh to set up a SMS-based advisory system to control late blight in potatoes. I have worked in many countries of the Americas, Asia and Africa, but most of my work was in Costa Rica, Bangladesh, Ethiopia and Indonesia.
