Lecturer in Geosciences
From being home to Nyasasaurus parringtoni, presumably the oldest dinosaurs to have roamed the earth, to being the home of Homo rudolfensis and the world’s greatest diversity of tilapine fishes, the Malawi region seems to have a conducive environment for evolution of various forms life. Thus the geology of the area is unique and key to the understanding of global environmental change.
The sediment archives present in the Malawi Rift region have potential for the reconstruction and the understanding of various environmental changes that have taken place in the area during the Cenozoic period. My broad research interests are in environmental reconstruction of the various time scales of the Cenozoic focusing on paleoclimate, paleohydrology, neo-tectonics and its influence on life using various proxies and desktop mapping approaches.
