Research interests

1 - Understand Human-Wildlife conflicts in both perspectives and how to minimize it in a changing world.
2 - Understand the ecology of mammals, especially carnivores in human-shaped ecosystems.
3 - Develop wildlife management strategies to promote conservation of biodiversity.
4 - Understand how nature tourism affects wildlife and how to allow economical sustainability of protected areas without compromising the ecological functioning natural ecosystems.

Research Interests

I' am a wildlife ecologist with interests in carnivores ecology, behavior and conservation. I'm also interested in human-wildlife conflicts and management. Co-existence is the key for the future, for our future and for wildlife future!
