Research Interests

The overall aim of my DPhil research is to improve the knowledge base on illegal wildlife trade in the Amazon. I am interested in using interdisciplinary methods to learn more about the demand, detectability and scale of the trade in bushmeat, exotic pets and animal parts. I am part of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) and my supervisor is Prof. E.J. Milner-Gulland.
