Welcome! This website is mainly about sharing my experience as a field and lab cognitive ecologist exploring the origins of disgust through the evolution of parasite and pathogen avoidance behaviours in animals. Over the last few years, I've also become interested in the potential applications of disease and predation risk perception to wildlife management and conservation. I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Applied Behavioural Ecology & Conservation Lab, School of Biological Sciences, University of Hong Kong.
