Mark van Wijk: Associate Scientist

Mark is Senior Scientist at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), currently based in Ecuador. He has 15 years of experience working on both fundamental and applied research in agro-ecosystems around the world.

Mark’s research focuses on interactions between agro-ecosystems and the environment and combines empirical and theoretical analyses. Together with a bunch of other scientists he has recently put together large databases of farm household characteristics in developing countries and developed the Rural Household Multiple Indicator Survey (RHoMIS), the latter a tool that is now widely used for research and applied agricultural development work.

Mark loves hiking when he is tired of reading thick books.
