I am a freelance researcher, trainer and consultant in Agricultural and Rural Livelihood Systems. I have headed several agricultural research and training projects and programmes in Africa, Asia and Latin America and also participated in several European projects as a researcher.
I have 40 years of teaching, supervising and examining students, both UK undergraduate and international graduate students, in a variety of countries. I have been heavily involved in monitoring and evaluation of agricultural systems research, education and development as well as participatory engagement in local food projects, farmers markets, agri environmental schemes, farming & tourism and community agroforestry/forest gardening.
I have an on-going interest in organic and sustainable agriculture and rural livelihoods throughout the world and how to educate the next generation of people who are interested in these topics.
