Research Interests

I am interested in the trio “habitat – primate – people” interactions; it is the topic I am focusing on in order to grasp an understanding of the impact of disturbance on habitat dynamics and species survival and the ecological processes governing forest structure; forest fragmentation and habitat quality; and plant and animal species survival strategies. My research site is in the Albertine Rift where human population density is highest in Africa and probably in the world. Therefore, I am also interested in applying participatory learning especially with grassroots through environmental education and ecological research methodology using primates, birds and plants as case studies. I have developed an interest in languages as a tool to communication, understanding and sharing knowledge with different people.
