Selomane is a postdoctoral researcher in the GRAID programme working on determining how complexity science can be applied to sustainability monitoring. His research particularly focuses on how consideration of key features of complex systems (e.g. nonlinearity) can improve the monitoring of sustainable development goals. He also works on how quantification of natural resource use can be improved through disaggregation of user groups, based on an array of demographic factors obtained in the South African census data. Both of these areas of work build on his PhD research, completed in 2017 through Stellenbosch University in South Africa, while he was based at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). He was also a researcher at CSIR from 2012 - 2017. Since January 2019, he joined PECS to help with its coordination.

Before his PhD, Selomane worked for a nonprofit organisation called Living Lands, where he was a research coordinator, supporting the organisation’s projects with research. He completed his MSc degree in Environmental Economics and Resource Management from Wageningen University in the Netherlands, and a BSc degree in Agricultural Economics from University of Limpopo in South Africa.

Selomane is currently a fellow in the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services(IPBES) Global Assessment working on global scenarios, a co-coordinator of the working group on ecosystem services within the Group on Earth Observations Biodiversity Network (GEOBON), a contributing author in the Global Environmental Outlook report, a fellow of the Balaton Group and a member of the Ecosystem Services Partnership working group on indicators.
