Flavio Moniz

Research Assistant

 

My name is Flavio Artur Moniz and I am 22 years old. I was born in the province of Manica, in the city of Chimoio, Mozambique. When I was 12 years old studying in Chimoio, I founded an association to help orphaned and disadvantaged children. I have 2 older brothers named Carlson and Jose and I have a pregnant girlfriend!

 

I have worked as a cook, a scout, and I also worked on a giraffe research project in Messica-Manica, Mozambique. I currently work in Gorongosa National Park as a research assistant for the Pringle Lab students of Princeton University. I help them with their projects including studies on wetlands, vegetation, and large mammals. I am extremely passionate about nature. I like birds and fish, and vegetables are my favorite food despite not being a vegetarian!
