Bio:
Alexandra is a Ph.D. student in the University Program in Ecology; her dissertation work in East Africa focuses on assessing effective conservation strategies in rural communities, and she possesses a strong professional background in federal science policy & communications. After her first trip to West Africa in 2006, she fell in love with the continent and all its vast natural and cultural wealth. She's been in love with East Africa since 2012, and feels incredibly fortunate that her dissertation has brought her to her second home, in rural Kenya.
