I am a PhD candidate working on movement ecology, animal behavior and
sensory ecology. My PhD aims at contributing to our understanding of the
effects of global changes, in particular wind shifts and bush
encroachment, on predator-prey relationships in large African mammals.

I am particularly interested in understanding how animals perceive their
environment and to what extent they use sensory cues, such as odors, to
behave in the landscape of fear. To do this, I have access to the
AfriMove initiative database, which combines movement data of 4 large
African herbivores from 15 different sites. I also use behavioral data
collected in the field and high-resolution biological data (GPS,
accelerometers, magnetometers and audio recordings) from lions,
wildebeest and zebras, tracked at my main study site, Hluhluwe-iMfolozi
Park, in South Africa.
