I'm a wildlife conservation postdoc at Cornell University, on the lands of the Gayogohó:nǫˀ in Ithaca, NY. I model elephant movements and interactions with veterinary fencing in the Kavango-Zambezi TFCA. As part of the Cornell Wildlife Health Center, my research aims to balance the needs of people, animals, and the environment ("One Health").
On this site, you can learn more about my postdoctoral fencing project; check out my talks on elephant conservation and antelope declines; and read about where I live and work and my perspectives & values.
I also write short fiction and data science tutorials; teach grade schoolers about savannas; seek to decolonize my ecology; and provide regular updates on my blog. I am at my happiest snapping photos in the African bush or waist-deep in the Eno River, stalking my subjects like a heron.
