Statement of interest: I am an environmental anthropologist studying traditional forest management practices in the Eastern DRC. I graduated from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies in 2016. Dr. Michael Dove was my advisor. I am now working in the DRC for the year as a Gruber fellow, doing further research on community forestry governance and the operation of international conservation ngos. I would love to be added to the list to keep up to date on the subject.

Geograpghical/topical area of interest: traditional environmental knowledge, community forests, Africa
