Professionally, I am a PhD candidate in the Sustainability Research Institute of the School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds. My PhD is (currently) titled: “The governance of natural resource management in Zimbabwe: Unraveling the relationship between conservation and development”. I submitted at the beginning of November and am currently awaiting the dreaded defence.

Personally, I think I was born with itchy feet and a need to explore, or to ramble and rove as I prefer to think of it. It’s the only logical explanation for why I am the way I am. And it’s not only my feet that wander, I’m very good at rambling in a different way as well. I blame my parents. I would have blamed them anyway but their attempts, from a young age, to encourage such nomadic and questioning characteristics makes them all the more guilty.

This website follows the adventures that my meandering mind and meandering feet take me on both personally and professionally. I owe the name of this blog to a song from my childhood plus, I ramble and I rove, and I do the two together spectacularly well.
