Research

Mammal communities in Europe are changing, ungulates and carnivores are on the rise and this leads to increased conflict between wildlife and humans and the need for science-based conservation and wildlife management. As an animal ecologist, I am especially interested in interactions between mammal species, their environment and human-wildlife conflict. I like to study interactions between species in space and time, and relating (relative) abundance of animals to crop damage, zoonotic-disease risk and other human-wildlife conflicts.
