Research Interests

Achieving coexistence between humans and wildlife, particularly dangerous large carnivores, is a major conservation challenge in the modern world. The DPhil student will be part of a diverse, international and highly successful research unit, which examines the relationships between human and wildlife, and how cutting-edge ecological and social science can inform conservation approaches. The details of any DPhil project would be defined in discussion with the student, but could involve the modelling of human-wildlife conflict, examining the diversity and distribution of carnivore communities across gradients of human pressure, assessing how ecological and socio-political factors affect conservation planning, and the impact of conservation strategies. A wide variety of potential methodologies could be employed for a DPhil study, including camera-trapping, socio-economic and attitudinal surveys, modelling of conflict, and remote sensing.
