My research interests are in the areas of community development, gender issues, natural resources management, and the links between agriculture, water and livelihoods. I have worked primarily in Africa (Kenya, Uganda, The Gambia, Botswana, South Africa and 17 other countries) and the Middle East (Jordan, Egypt, UAE, Syria). Recently completed programs are an NSF IGERT (AMW3) on water and watersheds in Florida and southern Africa, two USAID HED grants in southern Africa on curriculum reform in tourism and community based natural resources management, and the Water and Livelihoods Initiative (www.icarda.org/wli) in eight Middle Eastern countries. Ongoing global projects are USAID funded: INGENAES (Integrating gender and nutrition into advisory and extension services), innovATE (Innovations in agricultural training and education)and the Livestock Systems Innovation Lab (LSIL).
