I am broadly interested in how wildlife behave in human-dominated landscapes. Through my investigations I seek to mitigate human-wildlife conflict, support conservation efforts, and promote citizen science and environmental stewardship. I have worked on a wide range of wildlife projects, from studying semi-wild Elephant behavior and ecotourism in Thailand, to Colobus monkey crop raiding in Tanzania. My current thesis work involves using wildlife trail cameras to understand how mid-sized mammals, such as Racoons and Coyotes, are distributed throughout New York City’s greenspaces, establishing a long-term camera transect to monitor city wildlife across a gradient of urban intensity in the process.
