Chloe's research focuses on harnessing interactions between plants to design more sustainable cropping systems. In her current project, she is investigating which crop diversification options are most beneficial on smallholder farms in southern Africa. Previously, she has worked on how ecological practices and farm inputs interact to determine crop productivity, and on non-chemical weed management.
