Dr Tom Powell
A.G. Leventis Foundation Global Systems Institute Impact Fellow
As the A.G. Leventis Foundation Research Impact Fellow for the Global Systems Institute, I develop action-oriented research with external partners and contribute to multiple projects with land-use and sustainability themes. My research ranges from global land-use and food-systems modelling, to the potential for ecosystem restoration to build resilient and sustainable livelihoods for vulnerable communities while storing carbon and conserving biodiversity.
Current projects include:
- Analysing landscape-scale impacts of agroforestry by smallholder farmers in East Africa (TIST)
- Helping to develop community-led ecosystem restoration and monitoring in the Lake Chad basin (BIOPALT)
- Remote-sensing tools to support community grazing management in northern Kenya (NRT).
