Emilie Claire Vansant


I am an early-career social science researcher specializing in agriculture and food security studies. In the last 5 years, I have had the privilege to work with and learn from farming communities in India, Guatemala, Malaysia, Norway, France, and Malawi. In doing so, I have developed a strong capacity to address salient agro-food system issues in a holistic fashion, using a research approach that emphasizes methodological pluralism and cross-disciplinary collaboration.

My current research is on linkages between changes in forest cover/configuration and dietary quality in Malawi. Find out more at: http://thelandlab.net/the-forestdiet-project/
