I am an Assistant Professor in Wildlife Habitat Conservation at the University of Maine (USA). Research in my lab is focused on the impact of land-use change on vertebrate species (mammals and birds). We combine large-scale field-based projects with cutting-edge quantitative approaches. I have conducted projects in Europe (Italy, Austria), Africa (Kenya, Libya, Mauritania, Tunisia), south-east Asia (Indonesia) and Australia.
