Through agricultural development I have been able to evolve, refining my niche as I learn and grow. My scholarship is focused on teaching and learning methodologies, and on lessons learned from development programs. That helps me to improve my own teaching and gives me plenty of case studies and personal stories for my courses.''

If such problems are to be resolved, it will be through effective foreign policy.''
