I am a Post-Doctoral Researcher under the Convivial Conservation – CONVIVA project with Mathew Bukhi Mabele as the Principal Investigator (PI). I also coordinate research and publication activities in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at the University of Dodoma. Having trained in wildlife conservation and environmental governance, my research interests include environmental and wildlife conservation governance and justice. My current research work focuses on human-wildlife conflicts, exploring pathways to co-existence between lions and humans in the Great Ruaha-Rungwa Ecosystem – a research project on which I am working together with the PI. I have worked for the WWF Tanzania where I focused mainly on community wildlife management before joining the University of Dodoma. I teach and supervise undergraduate and graduate students in the areas of natural resource use and conservation, sustainable development issues and environmental economics and disaster governance. I have served as a reviewer for the Journal of Environment Planning and Management, and Tropical Conservation Science while I have published in both peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings.
