I'm a wildlife ecologist and conservation scientist focused on carnivores and the socio-ecological drivers of human-wildlife conflict and coexistence. I use an interdisciplinary toolkit that combines field-based ecological sampling and social surveys using a spatial approach. I collaborate with researchers and stakeholders across the world to compare similar ecological processes across a variety of systems.
As a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Brashares Lab at UC Berkeley, I'm designing decision support tools to assist natural resource managers and property owners understand and mitigate carnivore attacks on livestock. Through my role as a Research Associate with Panthera, I'm also contributing to studies on funding and co-management models for ensuring long-term viability of protected areas across Africa. I additionally publish magazine and blog articles as a freelance science writer and editor, and design websites for scientific outreach.
In 2015, I completed my PhD from the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies on the spatial patterns and human perspectives of tiger and leopard attacks on livestock in central India. More info on my background is available in my CV.
