Diego Ellis Soto is a Uruguayan Ph.D. candidate in Ecology at Yale University and a NASA FINESST Future Investigator. Working at the intersection of ecology, technology, conservation, and environmental justice, he researches how animals move across the world under increasing human threats and a changing climate. In addition, he is increasingly interested in how our access to biodiversity data is shaped by our socioeconomic status and how past and present social inequalities amplify current disparities in environmental sciences. Diego is also a music producer, blending sounds from biological concepts and technologies with music theory by, for example, making eight termites jam together or installing microphones on an urban farm to make farm birds sing a song. Diego’s work has been covered by numerous news outlets, including The New York Times, Forbes, BBC, ABC News, the Spanish news outlet EFE and more.
