I focus on the cross-cultural aspects of sustainable development, ethnographic methods/fieldwork, social entrepreneurship and social innovation, human dimensions of conservation, war and refugees and community-based peace building in Africa. I work in Cameroon, Kenya, Tanzania, South Sudan, South Africa, Rwanda, and Uganda. I have also researched 'Gross National Happiness' (GNH) in Bhutan. I just revised 'Lost Girl Found, for the upcoming paperback launch. It is an ethnographic fictional work written to raise awareness of the oil-fueled conflict in Sudan and the impact of gender on migration experience. It is from the perspective of a young female refugee. I have written chapters for Building Peace from Within: An Examination of Community-Based Peace Building and Transitions in Africa.This book seeks to examine how successful models of building 'peace from within' in the African continent. This October, I published an article in Sapiens about Hadzabe Hunter Gatherers.
