I am an ecologist and conservation biologist with interests revolving around tropical forests, plant-animal interactions, and natural history. Along with several collaborators, I study the effects of human activities on tropical forests - particularly hunting and logging - in order to better preserve these ecosystems and the organisms that inhabit them. This field has provided many opportunities for traveling, teaching, and conducting research across the tropics, where there seems never to be a dull moment.
I always enjoy hearing from others with similar interests and experiences, or with opportunities for collaboration. You can find more information about my teaching, research, and other experiences on this site, and you can contact me here.
