I’m interested in how wildlife populations are responding to anthropogenic pressure and how we can use demography as tool to predict the resilience of global biodiversity. During my PhD I used a long-term demographic dataset of Asian elephants to explore the drivers of population dynamics in a human-dominated system. In my first postdoc, I investigated how the climate is influencing population changes in the terrestrial mammals. Now my research is moving to the frontline of demography – the monitoring process itself. In the SalGo team, I am working on predicting and monitoring biodiversity using AI & robotics as part of the RainDrop project. Here, we are developing a set of state-of-the-art tools to autonomously collect the vital demographic data needed to predict the resilience of populations and communities.
