IUCN Species Survival Commision IUCN Cat Specialist Group
Areas of expertise
I am currently the PI on the Arabian tahr conservation project in Oman. My main interests lie in conservation biology. I have a broad biological background but concentrate on field based studies of behavioural ecology to understand species vulnerability. I have interests in the application of modelling techniques as a tool for species conservation, particularly habitat selection and species distributions. I have succesufully conducted research on lions in Botswana, Pallas's cat in Mongolia and now the Arabian tahr in Oman.
Languages (other than English)
I have guided a production team and cameramen and featured in a documentary about 'Swimming lions' in Botswana.
