Bradley Allf

Postdoctoral Research Scholar

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Dunn Lab where I study the biogeography of indoor-adapted species using data from a participatory (citizen) science project called “Never Home Alone.” I also manage a participatory science initiative called “Who Eats Whom,” which uses photographs of feeding animals to build a searchable global food web. I am also a freelance science writer and contributor to Smithsonian, Atlas Obscura, Scientific American, and many other publications.

My research focuses on using volunteer-collected data to answer large-scale ecological questions related to trophic connectivity and biogeography.
