My passions lie in studying wild carnivores and understanding their conservation needs and priorities. My long-term goals include undertaking adaptive conservation projects and research. With this, I hope to gain a better understanding into carnivore population dynamics, which should steer management, identify any influential human-wildlife conflicts, and possibly shed light on any information gaps in the management of other priority species.
The global loss of biodiversity paired with the shortcomings of protected areas highlights the need to improve the conservation potential of human-modified lands. Although often referred to as “ecological deserts”, large spatial scales and long rotation periods make tree plantations a relatively stable and permeable environment that could provide a...
Dramatic population declines of African wild dogs (Lycaon pictus) led to a managed metapopulation approach for wild dog conservation in South Africa. Monitoring the survival and habitat use of packs reintroduced into protected areas (PAs) is an essential part of adaptive management and improving the health and, ultimately, the survival of the metap...
Protected areas (PAs) form the cornerstone for most carnivore conservation strategies. However, climate change, increased isolation and human pressure along PA boundaries are together reducing the effectiveness of PAs to conserve carnivores. Mesocarnivores, in particular, frequently move beyond the boundaries of PAs where they threaten human liveli...
