I am an associate professor in the Paleoanthropology and Paleoenvironment Program at Addis Ababa University. I am trained in geology, GIS, and paleomagnetism. My research focus is on ancient environmental reconstructions, rift geology, sedimentary basin analysis and resource exploration, and the application of GIS and remote sensing in natural resources development and management. More recently I have become interested in natural and cultural tourism resource mapping, tourism product development, and community based ecotourism development and have published several books on these topics.
For the Middle Stone Age program I am interested in supervising students who are interested in a broad range of topics in geology as well as projects in tourism development.
