Jonathan Galka (DC ’18) is an Ecology & Evolutionary Biology major interested in the ecology of tropical freshwater and rain forest ecosystems. He is also interested in the paths and barriers to health for marginalized peoples, especially indigenous groups, and in the ecology of neglected tropical diseases. His interests in global health began during frequent trips to his native country of Ecuador, and over the course of long-term ecological field research in Guyana where he witnessed the huge barriers to health in poor and marginalized communities. At Yale, Jonathan works in the Invertebrate Zoology department of the Peabody Museum of Natural History. He is also a member of TEETH Slam Poets.
