In my postdoc I will analyse the relationship between agriculture, food shortage and child nutrition in four different countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.

In my PhD dissertation I have evaluated an agricultural project in Tanzania in collaboration with the Rockwool Foundation. I have assessed the impact of the project on food security, poverty and child nutrition, and I have studied the diffusion of agricultural technology in social networks.
