Esther Ronner is doing her PhD within the N2Africa project and is based at Wageningen University. Her PhD focuses on the effects of the large-scale dissemination of improved legume technologies on smallholder farmers. She assessed the implications of variability in soybean yield observed on farmers’ fields in northern Nigeria, and is currently working on the co-design of improved climbing bean production practices and their adoption and adaptation among smallholder farmers in highlands area of Uganda. Before starting her PhD, Esther Ronner was involved in the initiation of N2Africa project activities in Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda during the extension of the project to these three countries, and in data analysis of agronomy, demonstration and dissemination trials and impact assessment.

Esther holds an MSc in International Land and Water Management from Wageningen University and an MSc in International Development Studies from Utrecht University. She gained field experience in Kenya and Mali, and at the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in Geneva, Switzerland.
