I’m a biologist and animal researcher, and spent the last twelve years successfully managing and leading international zoo and wildlife research. My core areas of expertise are bioacoustics, animal behavior, and animal cognition. My research interests primarily focus on vocal production mechanisms and acoustic communication in mammals, with an emphasis on determining the information content and biological importance of vocalizations.
I’ve always had a love and passion for nature and wildlife, and I knew from a young age that I’d have to pursue a career and surround myself with things that make me happy and feel complete, even if it meant overcoming obstacles and going the extra mile. Until now, I’ve had the opportunity to travel the world, collaborate with numerous partners on common aims, and, most importantly, work scientifically with exotic animals in zoos and the wild. All of these experiences moulded me into the person I am today.
I am a biologist, scientist, conservation enthusiast, entrepreneur, innovator, and adventurer, and I’m proud of it.
