Andrew Zimmer

Agnese Nelms Haury Fellow
School of Geography and Development

Andrew Zimmer is a PhD student in the School of Geography and Development with interests in climate change and agriculture. His current work is part of an NSF-funded research project focused in Kenya and Zambia. This project seeks to understand the relationships between climate change, farmer decision-making, food security, and livelihoods. A key component of Andrew’s research is the development of a knowledge delivery system, where accurate agricultural data such as weather forecasts, seed choice, and planting dates can be delivered to farmers in a digestible manner, helping their agriculture and building resilience to climate change. Andrew also holds a Masters’ degree in environmental science and technology from Lancaster University, UK and a bachelor's degree in geography, also from Lancaster University.
