Background and activities

 

My research broadly focus on biodiversity conservation. I am interested in multiple subjects but I mainly focus on improving human-wildlife coexistence as well as filling gaps between science and policy. For these -ambitious- goals I am using a wide range of discipline, from spatial statistics and GIS to social sciences and ecology.

As a quantivative oriented person I am also involved in different courses given by the department of geography:

  • GEOG 3526: GIS: Geographical Information System 
  • GEOG 3527: GIS Tools for Climate Change studies
  • GEOG 3006: Quantitative methods

Do not hesitate to send me a mail if you have any questions related to my area of research :-)
