Research interests

My research focuses on animal ecology with a particular interest in foraging behaviour, resource selection, spatial use of habitats, and movement ecology of large mammals. Inevitably, the research integrates the social aspects, people’s attitudes and motivations to wildlife conservation.  My ultimate passion is to extend the understanding the ecosystem functioning, develop sustainable ways of human-wildlife coexistence, and to contribute to wildlife conservation.
