HALINA MALINOWSKI

Halina is interested in plant-animal interactions of keystone species, their cascading impact on other species and ecosystem productivity, and the disturbance or modification of these interactions caused by anthropogenic factors. During her undergraduate, Halina conducted a senior thesis focused on the impacts of Asian elephants on silica cycling. In 2016, she graduated from Boston University with her B.A. in Biology specializing in Ecology and Conservation.
 

Thereafter, Halina worked as a research assistant in Zambia studying orphan elephant behavior and implemented a human elephant conflict mitigation project. As part of the Poulsen lab, she is interested in investigating the spatial patterns, behavior, and ecological impact of forest elephants and how their decline, due to human disturbance, effects tropical forest ecosystems. She aims to use such research to advance conservation efforts of vulnerable species and preserve tropical ecosystems.
