Research Fields I have conducted my research on female pottery artisanship in Ethiopia with a focus on their techniques. My research interests lie in the development and practice of indigenous knowledge. Currently, I am working on research into the influence of modern school education on generation and inheritance of indigenous knowledge, the practice of new livelihood by the people who have experienced schooling in farming villages and the changes in the communities brought by those influences.
