Kyle’s interests lie at the nexus of food, water, and climate change. Combining crop models, climate projections, and agricultural census data, his work looks to identify strategies to increase nutrition, climate resilience, and water sustainability. His other research interests include: exploring the potential tradeoffs associated with large-scale land investments in the developing world and their implications for food security, rural livelihoods, and climate adaptation, 2) understanding the impacts of climatic and economic shocks on food supply chains, and 3) developing scientific approaches that better link science information to policy and tailor solutions to local needs and priorities.
