Summary Academic Interest: 

Broadly I am interested in animal behavior, conservation, and human-wildlife conflict. My proposed research considers the common hippopotamus and aims to address these topics by exploring the behavior and welfare of hippos in captivity, using quantitative techniques to explore, predict, and help formulate solutions to human-hippo conflict, and to promote the conservation of this vulnerable species both in captivity and the wild.
