I am a zoologist living in New Jersey, USA. I mostly study animal behavior, but also conservation, biogeography and ecology (more about my research).

I've written a few popular books about nature and travel; take a look.

My hobbies include travel, nature photography, and searching for particularly rare and little-known animals (more).

If you have any questions, just email me.

News: On June 22-July 3 I'll be teaching an online zoology course. It was designed for ages 12-17, but turns out others also enjoy it. It's an introduction to diversity and biology of animals, covering everything from amoebas to humans. No previous knowledge required. Update: due to overwhelming demand, the course will be repeated Mon-Fri July 7-17, 12:00-13:00 New York time. The cost is $200 pp. You can register at
