Othusitse Lekoko

PhD Candidate

I am a starting PhD student in the area of Wildfire. My project intends to look at savanna burning methodologies as used in the Australian context, and apply them to an African fire prone ecosystem with a view to curb atmospheric emissions and set the scene for carbon credits. My project area is in Botswana, Chobe area, where elephants also add to the complexity. The environmental and socio-economic dynamics of the area very much differ from those of Australia which makes my study quite fascinating.
