Vine Mutyasira is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics. He is from Zimbabwe, where he received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Zimbabwe before moving to the United States for his Ph.D. studies. Vine’s research interests center on the interface between agricultural production and natural resources. His current research focuses on sustainable intensification of smallholder farming systems, and seeks to unpack the drivers and process that shape farmers’ incentive to intensify the production in ways that enhance economic, social and environmental sustainability. He also seeks to explore the role of policy and institutional instruments and incentives in nudging farmers towards sustainable paths of agricultural intensification, through increased investments in resource-saving, climate-smart and resilient farming systems.
