About

My specialist areas are drought adaptation in cereals (wheat, rice, maize & sorghum), crop water use efficiency, crop nutrition, cropping systems (particularly rice-based systems in Asia and sorghum-based systems in Africa). I currently lead a project on developing drought adapted sorghum in 6 African nations (Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Sudan, Ethiopia & Kenya) which is largely funded by the European Commission through the CGIAR. I also lead a component of an international project to develop drought-adapted sorghum for India (Andhra Pradesh, Mahatrashtra & Karnataka) funded by ACIAR. I'm also a consultant for Bioforsk (Norway) in Vietnam working on the impact of climate change on rice-based cropping systems.
