Mr. Joseph Nderitu Kirathe

Currently, working on how Landscape resources influences population and distribution of the endangered Grevy’s zebra in Samburu-Laikipia landscape for my PhD thesis.   My interests and research focus is on wildlife populations, behavior and distribution, especially in Samburu –Laikipia landscape.  This will provide functional and mechanistic approaches to understanding factors currently contributing wildlife species declines in the landscape.  By factoring in impacts of human induced land use and climate change, conservation implications will actively being explored in Samburu-Laikipia landscape.

Mr. Moris Nabaala

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.

Prof. Romulus Abila

He is an Associate Professor and an ecologist. He is interested in understanding causes and threats to species diversity as well as elucidating species – environment – people interactions especially those of endangered species or environments. I seek to understand the effects of ecological, demographic and environmental processes on the genetic diversity of endangered species. My research lines combine the use of field studies on natural populations, molecular genetic techniques and analytical tools in ecology, population genetics and phylogenetics.  The overall objective is to obtain scientific information that can be incorporated into the conservation and management of biological resources. My research further involves employment of the ecosystem management approach to conservation and management of biological resources by harnessing environmental services and capacity building among long communities to undertake conservation for sustainable development programmes. My research interests therefore span ecology, conservation and socio economics.

Dr. Vincent O. Otieno

Before joining Maasai Mara University (MMU), school of Tourism and Natural Resource Management as a lecturer, I was at the University of Connecticut USA as a Research Assistant, pursuing both my Master and PhD in Natural Resource Management and Environment. My projects focused on various aspects of climate geared towards understanding and quantifying Biosphere and Atmosphere in the context of variability and climate change. The various projects that I worked on comprised of high resolution climate modeling, climate variability and change, and the link between land use/cover change and climate variability. Through these projects, I have developed strong interest in understanding causes of climate variability and change, especially on the role of land surface interaction with the atmosphere. In addition, the need to provide climate related information for localized intervention on health and agricultural related sectors inspires me to investigateon the best ways to mitigate the impact of climate extremes such as drought and floods on those sectors.Previously, I worked at the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), climate prediction and application center (ICPAC) in Nairobi-Kenya as a research fellow.

My Research Interest can therefore be summarized to be focused on; 

·         Regional Climate Modeling and Downscaling

·         Variability and change in the extremes of climate events

·         Land use/cover changes, their impacts and linkages to regional hydro-climatic changes

·         Uncertainty in regional climate projections

·         Localized climate information systems for health and agriculture.

Dr. Waweru Kamundia

He is an assistant lecturer in the School of Tourism and Natural Resource Management, Department of Environmental Science, Forestry and Natural Resources. Has previously worked with the Ministry of Agriculture, livestock and Fisheries as a veterinarian.

His interests are studying the aquatic animals health, aquatic pathobiology as a result of disease and environmental pollution mechanisms; microbial pollution and ecotoxicology affect these organisms; and the pathways and net effect of all these pollutant to man and their effects on human health.

Currently a PhD candidate in the University of Nairobi. He also holds a M.Sc. (Fish Science) and Bachelor in Veterinary Medicine from the same institution.

Dr. Menge Dominic is a highly creative and motivated molecular plant pathophysiologist involved in the study of the changes taking place in plants body due to diseases. The physical, biochemical and mechanical changes in the normal functioning of plants are some areas of concentration. The studies involve studying how diseases operate in plants bodies and recommendation of proper treatment. Areas of research include using cutting edge technology to develop plants with improved tolerance to biotic stress. Dr. Menge is equipped with plant physiology and biochemistry techniques and working knowledge of molecular biology methods used to dissect the modes of action of disease resistance in plants. Dr. Menge’s roles include oversight of other researchers and students, in addition to being embedded in a larger multi-disciplinary cross-functional research team developing crop productivity systems.  Dr. Menge’s has experience working in a matrixed environment, with proven project management experience and excellent communication skills. Leadership ability, initiative and sound judgment, the ability to prioritize under pressure and adapt to changing demands, and the ability to make rapid progress against goals despite tight timelines are critical skills.
