I am an environmental anthropologist holding a BSc in Anthropology with a special mention in anthropological applications in culture, environment, and society. Degree awarded with Extraordinary Graduation Award (1st of promotion) of the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology (UAB). I also hold an MSc in Advanced Research in Anthropology with specialization in Ethnographic and Transcultural Research from the Autonomous University of Barcelona with a Master’s thesis on pastoral commons in East Africa.
Amongst my research interests are the identification of traditional ecological knowledge and practices which are inherent to pastoral commons and to customary systems of governance of natural resources, and the analysis of their values, in terms of sustainability, conservation and welfare perception by the communities. I am also interested in the symbolic and practical relationships between humans and nature.
Currently, I am a Ph.D. researcher with a research project analysing the customary-based management of the pastoral resources among Wahehe communities of the Iringa Region, Southern Highlands of Tanzania and identifying potential pastoralist Indigenous and Community Conserved Areas (ICCAs). This project has been funded by the Catalan Agency for Management of University and Research Grants (AGAUR) and is under the supervision of Dr. Pablo Domínguez.
