u  Background:

I am a wildlife ecologist with a primary interest in applied wildlife management and monitoring. My professional background includes several years of work as a wildlife manager in North America and Pacific Oceania. Currently, I am leading a project studying carnivore guild ecology using non-invasive monitoring in Pakistan’s Karakoram Mountains, funded by the Research Council of Norway. In addition, I am participating in applied research on carnivores and ungulates in Scandinavia.
