I research land use and environmental conservation of East African Rift humid forests. I am interested in balancing livelihood concerns with wildlife wellbeing. I use cross-scale methods: combining interviews, field-based ecological surveys, and remote sensing in order to make site-specific recommendations. My Master's work, for example, looked at approaches for increasing forest connectivity in Southern Tanzania. My goal is to highlight conservation options that are both ecologically viable and socially equitable.
I enjoy cooking, gardening, and dancing. I also like discovering new places on foot.
