Nile project grabs new scientist – Beth Cullen

Beth Cullen

Beth gauges the breathing rate of a camel!

Dr Beth Cullen has joined ILRI as a post-doctoral fellow with PLE. Beth will be based in Addis Ababa and will work on the Nile Basin Development Challenge Projects and the SLP Crop Residues project.  She is an anthropologist and recently completed her PhD at the University of Durham UK. Her PhD research was conducted in Ethiopia and her thesis title was “By the Community, For the Community: An Investigation of Participatory Video with Karrayyu Oromo pastoralists in the Awash Valley, Ethiopia”. She reported on this work at the AgKnowledge Africa share fair in Addis Ababa in 2010.

“Thanks for the welcome! I’m really excited to be here and look forward to meeting people as I get settled in to life at ILRI”, she says.

As we can see from the photograph, Beth is already at home with the livestock community!
