What’s your passion?
“I study human-wildlife interactions in cities. This means I spend a lot of time talking to people about their interactions with wildlife. I love to learn about the way people perceive wild animals, especially foxes, coyote, and wolves!”
What’s your favorite pastime?
“When I’m not talking to a homeowner about the coyote pups in their deck or mapping coyote sightings, I love to go for long walks in new and familiar places. Walking gives me a chance to appreciate the natural beauty of the city, to relieve stress, to come up with new ideas, and, sometimes, to listen to interesting new podcasts.”
