Tamahi Kato (Yamauchi)Research Fellow

My major is African area studies and development. I have been working for many years as a development practitioner and a researcher. I am particularly interested in agricultural and rural development in sub-Saharan Africa, surrounding stakeholders analysis, socio-economic gaps between wealthy and poor farmers, and poverty reduction. I am also interested in the food security and nutrition, gender issues. And I would like to conduct policy analysis of those issues.
