Biography

I grew up in Southern Africa and have had the privilege to be surrounded by the beauty of the mountains, ocean and wildlife, all in one place! The divide between developed and underdeveloped communities spurs my research. I aim to better understand the link between the economy, society and the environment. I do this by evaluating economic efficiency with an emphasis on how social and natural value are created. My primary population of interest is rural communities.
