I was an active falconer between 1976 and 1991 and raptor biologist since 1987. As a Pacific islander from Taiwan, I am interested on insular birds of prey and other avian fauna. I have studied Elegant Scops Owl, Crested Goshawk and Crested Serpent Eagle and participated in Tawny Fish Owl radio telemetry in Taiwan.
I was a senior specialist of Maui forest bird recovery project in the endangered Po'ouli and Maui parrotbill recovery task.
I am still cooperating with colleagues in Taiwan studying crested serpent eagle. My main task in the next 4 years will be working on the endangered Puerto Rican Plain pigeon.
