My Work

Thesis Title
Compassion on the Ark


Short Biography
I am particularly interested in the relationship between culture and the development of environmental ethics, especially with respect to the conservation and welfare of wild animals. I am also proficient in six languages: English, French, Russian, Korean, Spanish, and German. My PhD research in Environmental Science and Policy undertakes a comparative study of zoos in the United States, South Korea, and France - specifically how these institutes fit into the larger context of the twenty-first century debate on modern zoos. I received bachelors and masters degrees in Biology and Society from Arizona State University, and was awarded a Boren Fellowship to South Korea, where I conducted research at the Seoul Zoo. My masters thesis, which explored the zoo’s animal welfare management and conservation priorities, has been published as a chapter in The Ark and Beyond, a book on the evolution of zoo and aquarium conservation.
