I'm a field biologist with academic training in anthropology and policy. I approach conservation issues from both a biological and ethnographic lens, attempting to bridge Western scientific frameworks with traditional ecological knowledge.
I am passionate about human and environmental rights, both of which are central to my on-going work with the Kayapó Peoples in Brazil.
