I am interested in African wildlife conservation from multiple approaches: new conservation technologies such as drone usage; community development and education; political ecology; Asian base-market demands; conservation media.
I am focused on human-wildlife conflict regarding elephants, rhinoceros and great apes, however I am at the beginning of my career and am learning applied conservation techniques from esteemed Drs. who may have different geographic/species interest.

I wish to apply my research for effective sustainable solutions and push the output of work and interest forward. My end goal is to receive my PhD in order to teach at a university and still be able to enact my own research agenda.
