I am a conservation ecologist interested in how wild animal populations respond to changes in their environment, resulting both from natural processes and human activities. Environmental change can affect animal populations in complex and unexpected ways, from disturbing the behaviour of individuals to altering the demography of populations. I collect and analyse long-term data in order to identify the drivers of such change. I use this information to identify conservation actions that can benefit animal populations, while allowing coexistence with humans.
