I am an ethnobiologist, ethnobotanist. My work attempts to link socio-economic development of under-represented communities through social enterprise and the sustainable management of natural resources. So far, I'm moving these concepts by examining the links between 1) the analysis of government guidelines and development programs, 2) how these are used and integrated into community enterprise, 3) and how they influence development policies.
