I live in Kenya, where I was born. I love nature, seeing things grow, and a healthy ecosystem gives me satisfaction. I am a graduate of a bachelor's and master's degrees in wildlife management. Currently, I am a Ph.D. student in Environmental Governance and Management at the University of Nairobi. I work at Karatina University as a tutorial fellow in the Department of Tourism and Hospitality. I am currently seeking to switch career from academia to become a practitioner in environmental conservation. For this reason, I joined wildHub to gain training in project management and other skills that will help me transit successfully. The wildHub community is also a good forum for networking. I believe that I can get to meet people who work in conservation and can be future collaborators in research and projects implementation. I am currently looking for a job opportunity in an organization that works in environmental conservation. I have mostly done research on human-lion conflict mitigation but I would be willing to work in any field of environmental conservation. This includes the conservation of aquatic ecosystems because I really love water. Being an educator I would like to support WildHub in any way possible in conducting training.
I have been doing research on lions in the Amboseli ecosystem in Kenya. Where communities regularly kill lions in retaliation for livestock predation. I have to put myself in the shoes of these people to understand the context, for personally I would cry for a lion.
