Dr Hannah S. Mumby is Drapers’ Company Junior Research Fellow, Pembroke College. Hannah completed her PhD on how life history of Asian elephants is influenced by environmental factors- including climate and stress. Her current research focuses on male African elephants. Males are possibly less well-understood that females, but understanding them better could be key to conservation of the species, particularly because males may be more likely to be involved in human-elephant conflict. Hannah looks into male sociality, relatedness, vocalisations and other characteristics with the aim of informing conservation strategies.
