About Elliott

Elliott was born in Saskatchewan and lived in Canada before moving to the United States. He completed his B.S. in biology and M.S. in environmental science at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA. During his time in Philadelphia, he worked at GlaxoSmithKline performing drug metabolism and pharmacokinetic research on pre-clinical drug compounds for heart failure. Elliott's masters thesis took him to West Africa where he studied the feeding ecology of the Fea's chameleon, an endemic chameleon to Bioko Island, Equatorial Guinea. Currently, Elliott is in the second year of the DVM/PhD program at CSU. His work focuses on the influence of genetics on infection and pathogenesis of feline leukemia virus in bobcats and mountain lions. Elliott is interested in disease ecology and infectious diseases of wildlife. When he is not in school, Elliott loves to travel, rock climb, and other outdoor activities, while dabbling in the occasional entomological, photography, or cinematography project on the side.
