My research focuses on predicting the effectiveness and understanding the impact of conservation policy interventions aimed at delivering behavioural change amongst small-scale resource users. I am particularly interested in the use of experimental economics and indirect questioning approaches in the investigation of illegal behaviour.
I am currently working on the Building Capacity for Pro-Poor Responses to Wildlife Crime in Uganda Project, which is funded by the Illegal Wildlife Trade Challenge Fund, in collaboration with the International Institute for Environment and Development, the Wildlife Conservation Society Uganda Program and the Ugandan Wildlife Authority.
