Matthew LaFevor's research examines agriculture, water, human-environment interactions, and environmental history, especially in Latin America and the Caribbean. At SESYNC, Matt synthesized data on the trends, drivers, and impacts of agricultural terracing around the world; how terraces impact soil and water conservation; and why people abandon, maintain, or build new terraces in different environments. Listed below are some publication as of 2016, along with funding agencies and a few links to ongoing research projects. For a current CV, see his webpage: http://www.matthewlafevor.com. Matt is currently Assistant Professor of Geography at the University of Alabama and can be reached at email@example.com.
