We are thrilled that Gabriele Volpato has joined the Pastoralist Transitions project in Kenya as a Center for Integrative Conservation Research Postdoctoral Scholar. With expertise in human ecology and ethnobotany, his doctoral research at Wageningen University focused on the Sahrawi people in Western Sahara and their efforts to re-engage with their traditional lifeways after displacement in refugee camps. We are all excited for the insights and collaborative synergy he will bring to the research program. Welcome, Gabriele!
