Living with Mount Mabo in Mozambique: Rethinking science, conservation and development in the context of neocoloniality and mass extinctions

Through the ontologies of Mount Mabo communities, Anselmo’s PhD thesis seeks to reinvigorate ways of thinking about how to practice science, justice, development and conservation so that they contribute towards socio-natural well-being in Mozambique. His other research interests are forest management, indigenous knowledges, the water-food-energy nexus and decoloniality. 

Anselmo holds a bachelor’s degree in English Language Teaching and Anthropology from Eduardo Mondlane University, Mozambique, and a master’s degree in Environmental Science from Linköping University, Sweden. He maintains a blog on science and society and is a PhD candidate in Social Anthropology. He is a researcher at Kaleidoscopio: Research in Public Policy and Culture.
