Dr. Shermin de Silva - we met at her fundraiser she hosted for trunks and leaves, an organization she founded to raise awareness for asian elephants. I was fascinated with her work with a subset of asian elephants and the communities that surround their habitat. She is a behavioral ecologist with research interests range from animal behavior and communication to population biology. She investigates how landcover changes might affect elephant populations and is interested in understanding how research translates into international wildlife conservation policy as well as public understanding and engagement with conservation in Asia.
