Luke L. Powell, PhD

Greetings! I am a conservation ecologist with the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and the University of Glasgow.  I'm also the director and co-founder of Biodiversity Initiative, an NGO and research collaborative dedicated to exploration, ecology and education in tropical rainforests - especially in Central Africa.  I have a handful of research projects, all of which seek to understand ecology to aid wildlife conservation in some capacity.
