I've worked as a social anthropologist in the natural resource and extractive industries sector, trying to find compromise between profit and people (which, after much reflection, I now think is impossible). Moved into appropriate technology design for the Global South. Currently farming in Congo.
Agriculture - both ultra low-tech and ultra high-tech; the rapid rise of Africa and its hybrid model of development; and Antarctica - where I want to build a shack one day to gaze at the stars.
Sequester carbon in poor tropical soils, in the form of biochar, to make these soils more productive and thus prevent deforestation.
I'm interested in agricultural robotics.
Interpreting suspiciously vague french philosophers.
