Research Interests: Jack is interested in African savanna ecology, with a special interest in the ecology of the common hippopotamus. Jack aims to fill gaps in our understanding of a well-known, declining megaherbivore that has received relatively little research attention. His PhD research will focus on understanding the determinants of their distributions, foraging ecology and their impacts on the savanna herbivore community.
Background & Other Interests: Jack grew up in Nashville, TN. He spent his childhood camping and hiking. He still enjoys these activities as well as birding, running, and enjoying good food and drinks with friends.
