Frowin is an avian ecologist with a penchant for acoustic monitoring. His primary research interests lie in determining how bird communities respond to changes in the environment and using birds, as well as sound as ecological indicators. Frowin has participated in ecological research across southern Africa. His involvement with the National Geographic Okavango Wilderness Project over last few years culminated in a doctoral degree, which he recently completed through the Victoria University of Wellington/Te Herenga Waka in New Zealand. Since pursuing a research career, Frowin’s trajectory largely steered him away from Namibia, but his role at the ORC signals an opportunity to apply himself and his expertise in the country of his birth. Frowin also serves on the board of the Society for Conservation Biology’s Africa Section.
