I'm an Assistant Professor at the University of Hong Kong. Read more about me here:

I am currently focusing on human-elephant interactions and behavioural ecology of Asian elephants in Nepal. I have collaborated with Elephants Alive for the Bull Elephant Network Project and have a long-standing association with the Myanmar Timber Elephant Project.

I also work on interactions between humans and wild boar in Hong Kong, in the Pigs in the City Project. I'm also starting exciting new projects with humans and elephants in Asia, watch this space for more details soon.


If you're interested in doing fieldwork with me, please contact me.

My work is currently funded by a Society in Science - Branco Weiss Fellowship and the University of Hong Kong. I've also held a Drapers' Company Fellowship at Pembroke College, a Fulbright Scholar Award, a fellowship at the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin, as well as grants from the NERC Biomolecular Analysis Facility in Sheffield, DST-NRF Fellowship and the Cambridge-Africa Alborada Research Fund,
