Research interest

I am interested in carrying out research in remote and resource dependent communities of the Pamir region of Tajikistan and trying to broaden my understanding of how these communities have generated, sustained and passed on their traditional ecological knowledge through the periods of socio-economic and geopolitical change. I am also looking at specifically how traditional ecological knowledge and practices of hunters in the region corresponds and contributes to the broader co-management of Community-based Wildlife Management in the region. Within my broader research project I am collaborating with the Hunting and Conservation Alliance of Tajikistan (H&CAT), Zorkul Nature Reserve and the Tajik National Park.
