I recently moved from Boston to help build and launch Petridish, and I'm excited to introduce a new way to help researchers fund fascinating work and give the public a way to connect with scientists!
I have an avid interest in social sciences, ecology, physics, and anthropology.
Ants are the glue that hold forests together. But Madagascar’s hotspots of biodiversity are vanishing, and along with them unknown species. An estimated 40% of the island’s species have already perished through human encroachment.
Few species communicate in a way remotely as complex as humans. Gelada monkeys are an exception. Geladas ‘talk’ to each other with complex sequences of sounds, but the function of these melodies is a mystery.
My research aims to gather data that will be used to understand rarity in Peruvian butterflies, in order to conserve them long into the future.
Sea turtles are the ancient mariners of our oceans. After hatching on a beach, they cross thousands of miles of ocean to reach areas with food. Yet, little is known about where these green sea turtles go and how they migrate.
In the vast abyss of the deep-sea, where light cannot penetrate and productive habitats are scarce, sound could play key ecological roles, but these soundscapes have never been studied. You can be the first to listen!
We used to think that estrogen pollution was mainly an issue in agricultural areas. But it is becoming clear that there may be significant contamination right in our backyards.
