meha_headshot_2My research broadly examines the impacts of environmental change on agricultural production, and strategies that farmers may adopt to reduce negative impacts. I do this by combining remote sensing and geospatial analyses with household-level and census datasets to examine farmer decision-making and behavior across large spatial and temporal scales. To date my work has focused on the impacts of weather variability and groundwater depletion on agricultural production in India, and whether farmers are able to adapt their cropping practices to mitigate these impacts.


I am an NSF SEES Postdoctoral Fellow in the lab of David Lobell in the Department of Earth System Science at Stanford University. I am excited to be joining the Sustainable Food Systems Initiative and the School of Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Michigan as an Assistant Professor in Fall of 2016.
