My research focuses on the transformation of African pastoral systems. I examine how pastoralists adapt to changing ecological, political and institutional conditions that affect their lives and livelihoods. I have been conducting research with pastoralists in the Far North Region of Cameroon since 1993. The long-term research has resulted in strong collaborations with local researchers, which has allowed me to develop new interdisciplinary research projects with colleagues at the Ohio State University and the University of Maroua in Cameroon.
