Members introduction

I am Research Program Leader for Enabling Impact at the World Vegetable Center (WorldVeg) based in Bangkok, Thailand. I study how programs and policies can contribute to improving the income of farmers through vegetables and how people's diets can be diversified by including more vegetables. My work focuses on safer vegetable production using less pesticides, home and school gardens, scaling of vegetable varieties, vegetable seed systems, and vegetable value chains.
