Asher Lazarus holds a BSc. in International Agricultural Development from the University of California, Davis. He is currently completing his MSc in Climate Studies at Wageningen University, with a focus on human-environment interactions. Asher is particularly interested in the intersection of water resource management and agri-food systems, and how climate change impacts these spheres. He hopes to apply his knowledge to projects that support environmental sustainability through socially equitable practices.

Asher’s MSc thesis involved the integration of natural and social science in developing food security indicators from modelled crop yields based on a case study in Pakistan. Having lived in the US, Morocco, Jordan, and the Netherlands, he brings a uniquely international perspective to the table. He is eager to keep learning about climate adaptation efforts around the world, and continues to develop his skills in geospatial and statistical analysis.
