My main research interests are centered on the ecology and conservation of vertebrates, in particular birds and mammals. I am currently working on three topics:

  • Conservation status and nesting distribution of birds of prey in Swaziland
  • Survival and dispersal patterns of the bat Nycteris thebaica
  • Community structure and breeding biology of savanna birds

I have also been involved with conservation planning in Swaziland at several different levels (e.g. baseline data collection; GIS analyses; development of strategies and action plans). For example, I was part of a team that investigated the spatial distribution of biodiversity assets in the country.
