His current research interest concerns how people care for animals, particularly how people instrumentalise unwanted and deplorable animals in the name of care. His postdoctoral work is studying mythologies, methodologies and technologies used to address mosquitoes and associated diseases and coproducing new mythologies, methodologies and technologies that are resilient and just. He brings experience of research and work in Northern Cyprus, global health, hunting studies, pest control, wildlife conservation, union and social organizing. And he is always up for a chat, making films, and exploring the local neighbourhood.
