Researcher biography

I am a PhD candidate in the School of Agriculture and Food Sciences at The University of Queensland. I am keen to understand how humans could co-exist with habitat specialist animals in human-dominated landscapes. To delve deeper into this matter, I am studying the movement ecology of red pandas in one such landscape in the Himalayas. My research aims to evaluate the effects of disturbances and fragmentation on space use, movement, and resource selection patterns of this specialist mammal. I am working with Associate Professor Peter Murray, Dr Greg Baxter, and Dr Nicholas Hudson on this project. Before commencing my PhD, I worked with the Red Panda Network in Nepal for eight years.
