Research

research overview

  • My research examines how people adapt to unpredictable environmental conditions in arid and semi-arid lands, especially in East Africa. This involves the study of land use, livelihood diversification, the adoption of cultivation, and migration. I am especially interested in how these changes affect the resilience of these coupled social/natural systems. Another aspect of my research involves understanding how national parks and protected areas impact the people living around them – both positively and negatively. I also conduct research on local concepts of well being and the relationship of climate and conflict in Kenya.
