I’m a PhD student in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Bristol. I study the transmission of parasites between wildlife and livestock from an ecological perspective. My study site is in and around Makgadikgadi Pans National Park in Botswana, and while I’m there I work with Elephants for Africa.
From 2010-2011, I held a Compton Mentor Fellowship (sadly no longer offered) from the Compton Foundation to set up a mobile-phone based livestock disease surveillance system in Western Kenya. The blog I wrote during that year can be found here.
