Brief Biography: Growing up in the coastal region of Nigeria, I experienced the serenity and diversity of the environment. This spurred my advocacy for wildlife conservation and environmental protection. While I am not attending to research, I am either listening to music or photographing nature.

Current Research: I am especially interested in evaluating the impact of anthropogenic activities on wildlife and how such assessments inform policy making and environmental regulations. My current research seeks to evaluate the impact of harvest/ice fishing on the Black Crappie fish population using age, growth, and structure trajectories. This project aims to model potential long-term consequences of harvest on their population and sustenance capacity in preparation for an age of scarcity.
