Personal Statement

I am an evolutionary ecologist researching the interactions between wild plants and animals and how these can be affected by human activities. My research is integrative and multi-disciplinary and combines field observations of animal foraging behavior in the tropics with diverse analytical techniques – including chemistry and spectroscopy – to quantify plant attractants and deterrents.
