Research Fields I have conducted research in rural Zambia and study on migration and livelihood. I have focused on the differences of livelihood and land use between ethnic groups, and on social ties which create among ethnic groups. I am interested in immigration situations of immigrants and the past and future changes of multi-ethnic communities.
