Wildlife Biologist Interests: Human-Wildlife Conflicts and Mitigation, Movement Ecology, Population Studies, Carnivore Research, Turtle Demographics and Movement, Citizen Science, Road Ecology, Fencing for Conservation and Ecological Restoration
Wildlife biologist and reformed capital markets banker. My interests lie in human-wildlife conflicts, carnivore behaviour in small reserves and population dynamics of wildlife in urban centres. I have field sites in Kenya (at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy), where I study carnivore behaviour, prey-traps, wildlife fencing, as well as issues arising in communities living on the borders of wildlife conservancies. I am currently a Post Doctoral Fellow at York University (in Prof. Suzanne MacDonald's lab) and work closely with the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) where I study turtle demographics in urban and created wetlands as well as the effects of persistent road mortality on turtle demographics.
