Ep. 14 | Turning Passion into Research: Elephants & Human Health with Daniella Chusyd, PhD Part 1
/

In this week’s episodes, I’m chatting with a very interesting researcher, Daniella Chusyd, Ph.D. who is studying elephants to better understand ourselves.

In Part 1, we go back in time and learn about her childhood, international experiences, and opportunities that led her to academia. We go into depth about her current research, and let me tell you, it’s fascinating. From studying elephant mental aging to working with elephant orphanages in Zambia and South Africa to understand how experiencing early life trauma relates to health, behavior, and cognition, Daniella is pioneering a whole new way to learn about us while conserving the world’s largest land animal. I’ve studied elephants a lot over the years and I learned so much from Daniella. I’m sure you will, too!

In tomorrow’s episode, she and I explore her struggles throughout her career and what she’s had to overcome to get to where she is today. She also gives fantastic, applicable advice that you won’t want to miss it!
