Dr Tomas Chaigneau

Lecturer in Social Sciences


I am currently working on a project which investigates the relationship between coastal ecosystem services and poverty alleviation in both rural and urban villages of Kenya and Mozambique. My role is to assess how different ecosystem services and the benefits or costs they may provide, contribute to the well-being of the poor.           

I am also a member of the Geography department in the College of Life and Environmental Sciences
