I am a wildlife scientist interested in the ecology and conservation of felids within socio-ecological systems. My dissertation focuses on the impacts of development on human-tiger coexistence in the Terai Arc Landscape of Nepal. I utilize methods from both ecology and social science, from satellite tracking and spatial modeling to in-depth interviews and participatory surveys. My research aims to contribute strategies to adapt for the future of wildlife and people as well as promote the role of local and indigenous leadership in effective and equitable conservation.
