Educator, Ecologist, Nature Detective, Program Director @ UCSC Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program

Hello! Things on this website fall into four categories

Teaching - Training the next generation of scientists and conservation leaders, and researching inquiry based pedagogy

Research - I enjoy answering useful questions that can help us protect biodiversity. I'm really keen on soundscapes and biodiversity monitoring improvements to drive more positive conservation outcomes.

Multimedia - I like to take pictures, and tell stories with multimedia

Everything Else - That's the point of a personal website right? Natural history musings, recipes and more.
