Research interest

I am particularly interested in the enforcement of laws and standards set up by governments regarding camping, hunting and laws governing natural resource use. I like giving training courses on firearms safety, camping tips and the importance of preserving natural spaces. Most importantly, I also look into environmental and population health by carrying out regular investigations of water conditions, soil conditions, and populations of animals.
