Please inquire for special requests and announcements. Expedition leaves May 15th, 2017

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be working with Harvard University and the Planetary Health Alliance in Madagascar to both document and teach. Field research topics will include-

1) fisheries and food security in the Antongil Bay of Madagascar;
2) eco-epidemiology of malaria and other vector-borne diseases in Northeastern Madagascar;
3) health system improvement and disease surveillance in Northeastern Madagascar;
4) poultry interventions to solve the bushmeat crisis in Makira National Park.
5) how climate change will affect sea temperature rise and lead to fishery collapses across the world, preventing malnourished people from accessing adequate nutritious foods
