I am a Research Scientist at the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory in Colorado State University's Warner College of Natural Resources. I received my PhD in Ecology and MSc in Rangeland Ecosystem Science, both at CSU. I also have a BSc in Education. My research focuses on taking a systems approach to African dryland ecology, and finding balance between conservation and livelihoods in areas where drought is a regular occurrence and conservation policies can affect local resilience. My past research in Tanzania has explored the implications of increasing cultivation by Maasai pastoralists for both Maasai livelihoods and migratory wildlife outside of Tarangire National Park, and implications of conservation policy for livelihoods in this area as well as in Ngorongoro and Loliondo. I am interested in how pastoral risks and changes in risk presented by climate change, development and other conditions interplay (both on the ground and in the political arena) with the risks and needs of migratory wildlife populations. I am also interested in how local communities can work with protected areas to increase sustainability of both livelihoods and wildlife and other natural resources through community-driven and needs-based research and education, information exchange, and negotiated resource use and sharing.
