About Keir Chauhan

I am a History Undergraduate at University College London and a Laidlaw Scholar. My research project was on a conservation NGO in the UK and my follow-up worked with the American Bird Conservancy to produce a chapter for an upcoming eBook on People and Birds.

I am interested in how to make our connections to nature stronger through Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion work.

I am fascinated by the power of being grounded in a place. That is the stories that we tell ourselves and the power of those narratives on how we act.

WOW Keir, what an amazing reflection! Though I'm surprised to read about your apphrehension of traveling abroad. You seemed very much in your element during the Arboretum walk, with sharing your knowledge and interviewing the other birders. I can't wait to read your chapter of People and Birds! 

Thanks, Grace. I felt like I really grew as a person going to the States and it was an absolute blast to meet up with you while you were back home.
