His research aims at designing models that make possible both a sustainable environment and economic development from developing nations perspective premised on variables of human development, ecological and environmental economics, and climate-smart agriculture. He has developed a Multidimensional Environmental Well-Being Framework to measure multiple environmental deprivations to improve socioeconomic, well-being, and poverty analysis to achieve sustainable development.
