About

I worked as an economist / consultant for 10 years at the World Bank before joining IFPRI (International Food Policy Research Institute) in March 2010. My primary research at the World Bank was with land use and land use change, principally as it resulted in tropical deforestation. Other areas of research included the economic impact of urban areas on associated rural areas; the impact of weather related shocks on household well-being; and spatial interpolation of data. Tim has been using GIS for 10 years, and is interested in all sorts of spatial, geographical, and locational issues in the study of economic development.
