Profil badawczy

My research focuses on coexistence scenarios of wildlife and humans according to behaviors, population dynamics, and interdisciplinary considerations. For my PhD at the Mammal Research Institute PAS in Białowieża, I use remote observation technologies to understand changes in wolf ecology in response to human interactions in European shared ‘landscapes of fear’. I am also interested in biodiversity conservation and management, particularly in Southeast Asia.
