SUMMARY & PHILOSOPHY
My research interests include general ecology, animal behaviour, herpetology and applied conservation.
I have studied the ecology and behaviour of reptiles and amphibians since I was 12 years old, and was so intrigued that I pursued a career in academia. I set out to carefully examine the local endangered populations, and determine their proximate causes of decline in order to eventually create a management plan that would aid in their recovery.
Aside from maintaining collaborations within the academic community, I believe that consistent communication and cooperation among researchers, government and the public is key for creating a happier, healthier future for the local community and environment. I strive to implement these collaborations in all projects I design and manage.
