Agnes Andersson Djurfeldt

Professor of Human Geography, Lund University

My research interests focuses on rural based processes of transformation within and outside agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa involving changing rural and multi-spatial livelihoods, gender based access to productive resources within and outside agriculture, consumption and intra-household division of labor and income. I work with a mixed-methods approach combining the use of longitudinal data from a database collected by researchers in several African countries, with qualitative field work at the individual, household and village level mainly in Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria and Zambia.

I am regularly involved in public events and stakeholder meetings related to food security, gender and agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa.
