Timothy Krupnik has worked in agricultural research for development in Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and the Caribbean. At CIMMYT, he leads a multi-disciplinary research team implementing a portfolio of projects focused on the principles of sustainable and ecological intensification in smallholder farming systems in Asia.

This team spans disciplines and brings together technical skills ranging from systems agronomy, remote sensing, socioeconomics, climatology, agricultural engineering, and modeling and data science. The team’s research is aimed at generating real-world impact by addressing key knowledge gaps and developing practical tools and supportive systems to raise farmers’ productivity and resilience in the context of the region’s biophysical, economic, and sociocultural diversity.
