Samuel Onyango Omondi

Admitted to PhD Programme: 2014-12-11

Supervisor: Magnus Jirström

Assistant supervisor: Yahia Mahmoud

I am a double PhD candidate at the Department of Human Geography, Lund University and Department of Agricultural Economics, University of Nairobi. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Education and Extension (2010) and a Master of Science degree in Agricultural and Applied Economics (2014) from University of Nairobi.

Currently, I am part of the researchers in a broad collaborative multidisciplinary research on   ‘African urban agriculture: environmental, social and economic challenges and prospects under changing global and demographic realities.’ The research focuses on social, economic and environmental issues of urban agriculture in six African cities in three countries (Kenya, Ghana and Uganda). My PhD research niche is on the role of urban-based agriculture on food security and income, with a deeper focus on urban poultry farming in Kisumu and Thika, Kenya.

Main research interests include impact evaluation, food security, agricultural productivity and agricultural value chains
