Saeideh Esmaeili (PhD student, UW)

I earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s of Environmental Science from Isfahan University of Technology, Isfahan, Iran. Since then, I have been involved in many research projects on the conservation of locally and globally threatened species like Persian wild ass, goitered gazelle, Indian gazelle, sand cat, Asiatic cheetah, and Asiatic houbara bustard. My dissertation seeks to understand ecological and socio-economic correlates surrounding the migrations of a globally-endangered equid, the onager, in south central Iran.

Simon Lima (former research technician, Mpala)

Simon Lima (pictured here after a trying stint in Tsavo National Park) was an invaluable member of our research team between 2004 and 2015. He is a guru with GPS, ungulate captures, and radio-telemetry, and he can spot giraffes at over 500 km (pun intended, to be sure). And he's the proud father of two of the cutest kids in Laikipia. He will be missed dearly.
