I am flying a lot less than is expected of me from my role. It is a constant challenge to repeat myself to those in the academia who have the ability to remain blind to the facts, even after knowing the facts. My discomfort of hypocrisy is greater than my career ambitions, and so I travel less despite the pressure to travel. And I hope that it will eventually bring about positive changes within my circle of influence.
My research work spans the economics to the ecology of sustainable agriculture.
