Quantitative Ecology Lab

Addressing ecological, conservation and evolutionary challenges using novel methods, models, data and analyses

Movement Ecology and Wildlife Mangement

We link the process of animal movement to general ecology and evolution as well as how movements impact animals life history, demography and their ecosystems. The consequences of animal movements are immense both ecologically and economically, therefore there is vast potential in this field and much work is needed as we continue to modify our land and sea scapes at a rapid pace. We work across species and ecosystems.

Biodivsersity Monitoring and Conservation

We are witnessing a global biodiversity crisis! Much work is needed on monitoring and assessing biodiversity, its loss and using this knowledge to feed into implementing conservation and mitigation hierarchy and identifying future investments and priorities for biodiversity. We produce knowledge on all such aspects to help societal stakeholders and policymakers in making better decisions.

Human Wildlife Interactions

With the loss of habitats, human behavior and consumption patterns or successful conservation, animals are increasingly coming into contact with us. By combining data and knowledge on animal and human movements, we map, measure and quantify human wildlife interactions and test solutions to contain, control or manage these for a positive outcome for biodiversity and people who depending upon nature for their livelihoods. Renewable energy is a key focus area of our research.
