Personal Bio I am a quantitative ecologist interested in applying empirical insight to complex management problems. I am committed to diversifying science and academia, and worked as an undergraduate student organizer on issues related to immigrant communities, Asian/Pacific Islanders, racial minorities on campus, and increasing access to higher education for low-income communities. For the past few years, I have worked primarily in Asia (mainly China, and secondarily in India) on conservation problems, looking for opportunities to reconcile the interests of wildlife communities and humans.
Fun Fact 1. I am a big fan of chilies, especially Hunan Chaotian, Thai Birds Eye, and Poblano, and Habanero. 2. I have been a dedicated KTV singer since childhood. Current obsession: Hamilton.
Research Keywords conservation; mathematical biology
Research Pitch One unresolved issue in conservation is mitigating the impact of destructive, excessive hunting effort. Existing theories fail to capture how hunters (and other harvesters, such as fishers) would respond in more complex, multi-species settings. In my research, I have combined avian and mammal surveys with interviews and mathematical modeling to investigate what: 1) drives hunter behavior in these more complex environments; 2) the impact that different prey species exert on one another.
