Research interest:

I am interested in working on wildlife researches particularly in Animal behavior, especially primates to be precise.  So far I have already conducted a number of researches in this area, including “ Food competition among the primates of Gombe National Park” ( I did it as my undergraduate special project);  “Habitat use and Conservation status of Blue Monkeys and Black and White Colobus Monkeys , in Amani nature Reserve (For my MSc Thesis).  I have also worked on “Population status of newly discovered primates species, Rungwecebus kipunji; Primate monitoring in the Udzungwa Mountains; and currently I am working on Foraging habit and sexual segregation in yellow baboons in Mikumi National Park.  Studies in primates’ behavior are very important and better understanding of their behavior help a lot in understanding human social life and behavior.
