I hold an MSc in conservation biology from the University of Kent (UK). In addition, i have undertaken one year of course work at Clemson University (US) in Parks , recreation and tourism management.

I have been involved in research on large ungulates as well as in conservation planning and in setting up of sustainable tourism programs in the Maasai Mara ecosystem that include wildlife conservancies and responsible nature guiding.

My teaching area is in wildlife ecology and sustainable wildlife and park uses that include visitor use of wildlife areas.

My research interests include community based conservation, modeling visitor use of parks and park and local community interactions. 

I am currently working with the local community in Maasai Mara to stabilize the population of cheetahs in the ecosystem.
