Nils Lindahl Elliot is an independent researcher and writer with a specialism in transdisciplinary research about mediated understandings of science and nature. He is the author of Mediating Nature (Routledge, 2006), Observing Wildlife in Tropical Forests (Delome, 2019), as well as articles in peer-reviewed journals and edited collections. For two decades he worked as a full-time lecturer and researcher in higher education. Most of that period was spent in Bristol, England, his current home.

Nils’ research has been recognised with grants provided by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Board (now AHRC), the British Academy, and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The investigation for his latest book (Observing Wildlife in Tropical Forests) began when he received the support of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) to conduct ethnographic research with groups of tourists on day trips to Barro Colorado Island.

Nils is currently working on Volume 2 of Observing Wildlife in a Tropical Forest, and Chronicle of a Disaster Foretold: The Warning of Armero, a genealogy of the Armero Disaster in Colombia.
