Kenya 2011

In 2011, I spent six months in the central highlands of Kenya working as a field technician for Dustin Rubenstein. I set up a field site at Lewa Wildlife Conservancy for a study on how
fire influences kin structure and social behavior in the superb starling, building from previous work showing that human-altered landscapes influence their social behavior.

 

Here are some of my favorite memories:
