My name is Josue but you can call me Yoshi (like the dinosaur from Mario).
I'm an Ecuadorian wildlife biologist, mainly with working experience with birds and using mist-nets for all type of studies. I recently finished an MSc. in Ecology, with main work in Behavioral Ecology, in Edmonton, Canada. I have worked mainly in the research of predator-prey and population dynamics between different species of raptors.
Besides my passion for birds of prey and love for nature, I'm also an experienced archer and a recently certified archery coach in Canada.
Currently, I am living in Ohio supporting my wife doing an MFA and waiting for the residency process to go through. So, I am in transition mode between grad programs. I am looking into a Ph.D. program in Conservation but that is still to be defined.
I would like to focus my future work on Conservation and biodiversity monitoring mainly in my home country, Ecuador. I have close to no experience managing a project outside of academic research so I’m very excited to start this workshop and looking forward to meeting you all and to have amazing worldwide networking.
