Research interests

During my undergraduate years I developed a passion for wildlife management and conservation, which made me zealous to dedicate my efforts into research that contribute to the protection and conservation of wild animal species.

 I have a general interest in exploring biodiversity and wildlife conservation issues including drivers and impacts of overexploitation of wildlife products, factors that threaten species, and the methods we can use to effectively conserve them. Through my field experience I became enthused about exploitation of wild animals as food, and the threat this poses to their conservation. I have a particular interest in the bushmeat trade and its implications for resource sustainability and wild animal species conservation, which is the focus of my PhD research work.
