I am a conservation ecologist with keen interest in forest ecology and how forest habitat integrity affects wildlife conservation. I am also interested in how anthropogenic activities shape the relationship of wildlife and their habitats, especially for birds in the tropical forest environments.
I graduated with BSc in Wildlife Management from Moi University, Kenya in 2004 with a research dissertation on how a forest dwelling community ‘the Ogiek’ utilized forest and wildlife resources in Mau forest, Kenya. I then pursued a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree in Wildlife Management from Moi University and graduated in December 2010. My MPhil research area was on how Kenyan coastal forest birds relates with their fragmented forest habitats. Following this, I worked as a part-time lecturer of Wildlife management, ecology, and conservation at Egerton University before working as an assistant lecturer of wildlife ecology and conservation and a faculty member at Chuka University from the year 2013 to date. I joined University of Brighton in January 2018 as a PhD student, studying how disturbance in Afromontane forests affect birds and how bird community respond to habitat characteristic change and degradation in relation to undisturbed, disturbed and plantation forests, using the lower parts of eastern and south-eastern parts of Mount Kenya as a study area.
