I am a biologist by training and a behavioral ecologist by passion. I am primarily interested in understanding the dynamics of social, cultural and ecological systems and other networked biological phenomena by combining multiple types empirical data on social animals and multiple analytical and modeling tools. I enjoy engaging in theory-driven research that is empirically-based and has real-world implications for conservation of wildlife, humans and the environment they share.
