I have a great interest in poverty eradication and believe that most of these social issues can be solved, and better understood if we start looking at them from a complexity perspective. I have a background in teaching and learning, voluntary work, as well as business and entrepreneurship development.

My research is attempts to understand the existing and potential livelihood options for communities in the Kavango East region of Namibia by exploring the interactions and interconnections of water, energy and food in order to co-develop recommendations and response options for enhancing equitable and sustainable development.
