Cropping Systems Ecologist

BIOGRAPHY

Chloe is a plant ecologist exploring how the interactions between plants and their environments can be used to design sustainable agroecosystems. She is currently working on crop diversity in sub-Saharan Africa, through the project “GLTEN Africa: cropping system diversity, a cornerstone of sustainable intensification”. This project draws together lessons from long-term cropping experiments, novel intercropping trials and surveys of smallholder farms in sub-Saharan Africa, and aims to quantify the contribution of cropping system diversity to agricultural sustainability.

Chloe’s expertise lies in applying plant ecology to real-world challenges in agriculture and conservation, entailing skills from fieldwork to multivariate data analysis and communicating findings to a wide range of audiences. Her previous research has investigated weed management in South Africa, silvopastoral systems in Ecuador, and the conservation of endangered plants in Oman.
