I am using crop modeling and remote sensing to understand the changes in rice production around the Tonle Sap Lake in Cambodia, the largest and most important lake in the Lower Mekong Region in South-East Asia. With the increasing presence of hydropower dams in the Mekong River, the amount and quality of nutrients, fish, and water that goes to the Tonle Sap Lake is reduced. My research looks at how planting time, location, and harvest yield of rice are affected by these recent changes. This study is part of to the Sustainable Mekong Livelihoods Project funded by the Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy and Water Systems (INFEWS).
