Personal Statement
My prior research has largely been focused on jaguar ecology and conservation in Brazil. For my Masters research I studied how environmental factors and interspecific interactions affect carnivore coexistence in the Brazilian Pantanal. I have been a member of the Jaguar Conservation Fund for a number of years where I assisted with long term monitoring projects in two biomes of Brazil; additionally I worked with a tiger conflict mitigation project in India and assisted with research on a large carnivore project in South Africa. My research interests include large carnivore ecology, conflict mitigation and conservation
