“The more you gain knowledge about a species, the more you understand about how better to help protect the species and the environment” 


I am originally from Zimbabwe and have been staying in South Africa since 2013. I am an ecologist with a broad research interest in invasion ecology, with particular attention to the impacts of global change on invasion ecology. I largely focus on ecological and socio-economic impacts of biological invasions as a result of global change. And I also focus on controlling biological invasions.
