I am a nature enthusiast and biodiversity conservationist with a BSc. in Wildlife Science and Conservation from the University Of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. During my University studies, I conducted different wilderness field studies in Tanzania’s protected areas, including Saadani National Park and Ruaha National Park. Since graduating, I have worked for the Tanzania National Institute for Medical research (NIMR) – Muhimbili Centre as a Research Assistant where I gathered data from people for various clinical research studies. These experiences have made me conversant in both qualitative and quantitative social science data collection methods. Working in clinical research provided me with an opportunity to increase my knowledge and skills in the area of social science and strengthened my ability to work as an interdisciplinary conservation scientist. In September 2019, I started working as a Field Assistant for ConHuB Tanzania where I will be involved in collecting data from people across the Ruaha-Rungwa landscape.
