I am an agricultural and environmental geographer with a profound interest in climate-agriculture-food relationships. My research areas include Climate Change Risks, Adaptation, Agricultural systems, Agroecology and Food Security. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D in Geography, Environment and Population in The University of Adelaide, Australia, researching on how agricultural systems in Indigenous farming communities are adapting to climate change to promote food security in northern Ghana.
