Short Bio:
The lead-time between initiating agricultural R&D and full deployment in farmers' fields takes anywhere from 10 to 25 years, so concentrating on today's issues may lead to having solutions for yesterday's problems. Gideon leads the foresight, ex-ante impact assessment and targeting team at CIMMYT, and for Maize and Wheat CRPs. The research focuses on climate change, new and emerging pests and diseases, dietary change, rural transformation, and disruptive technologies. Ex-ante impact assessment looks both at pipeline technologies and at research investments. Gideon holds a PhD in development economics from Wageningen University and over the years has worked for CGIAR, academia, NARS and a development NGO on a wide variety of topics. He is an expert at complex modelling, especially using GAMS and R.
Gideon leads the community of practice on socio-economic data in the CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture. He chairs the Institutional Ethics in Research Committee.
