My research focus is on South Africa’s endemic birds, particularly the Fynbos and Karoo biomes.

The birds of the Fynbos biome are particularly negatively impacted by human activity, particularly agricultural encroachment (ploughing). However, Karoo birds benefit from human presence, as this is an arid zone, where small livestock farmers provide water and food.
