I study the savanna ecosystems of southern and eastern Africa, with a particular interest in understanding trophic interactions among large mammals and the nutrient flows they mediate.

Large mammals in African savannas are particularly susceptible to being killed by humans and to losing habitat due to human land use. Generally, the well-being of local people is diminishing in areas where wildlife resources are declining, due to foregone opportunities for sustainable use.
