I am gay and I am a wildlife biologist/ecologist. //

I’m a gay biologist specializing in large, African mammals. Currently, I’m a PhD candidate at the University of New South Wales (Australia), investigating how large herbivores (particularly elephants) behave around water resources in north-eastern Botswana. I previously did my BSc in Wildlife Management at the University of Aberdeen (UK) and my MSc in Conservation Science at the Imperial College London (UK). I try to get involved with LGBTQ+ activism both at my current university as well as internationally, and I want to be a friendly face to those struggling with their sexuality (as I did not have the same during my younger academic years).
