Investigating predator-prey dynamics with a special focus on direct and indirect predator effects on prey behavior, prey demography, and ecosystem functioning
Exploring anti-predator decision-making of large herbivores in response to predators such as lions, hyenas, cheetahs, wild dogs, leopards, and wolves
Tracking the cascading effects of predators on soil and plant communities
Integrating behavioral and demographic information from predator monitoring projects,camera trapping initiatives, and manipulative experiments
Currently studying how ecological communities respond to predator reintroductions: can relationships between predators and prey be restored and does renewed predation risk trickle down to impact lower trophic levels?
Heavily involved with citizen science,publicoutreach, and capacity building
Collaborating to develop cutting-edge technological tools, including open-source software, hardware, and AI, to tackle complex conservation challenges
