Biography

I have a particular interest in mammalian ecology and conservation as well as environmental education. My passion for effective evidence-based applied ecology and education drives me to pursue both disciplines in innovative ways, in turn contributing to raising awareness about conservation issues and nurturing our future leaders in conservation.

I am interested in the use of innovative teaching tools such as eLearning, digital tools and serious games to make learning immersive and effective.

I am currently convening the modules "Patterns of Life", "Landscape Ecology and Spatial Planning" and "Advanced Geospatial Information Systems and Remote Sensing". I contribute to the teaching of "Environmental Data Analysis" and "Tropical Ecology".

Research Summary

My current research is focused on the habitat use of large mammals (e.g. ocelots, clouded leopards) and the effects of innovative education (e.g. games) on people's attitudes and behaviour towards… read more
