I’m interested in Conservation Ecology mainly of birds and meso/large carnivores using several methods: transects/snow-tracking, howling, camera-traps, diet analysis (Eurasian otter), play-back method, bird point count , bird census and bird ringing. I’ve well developed statistical and spatial analysis skills, working with R and QGIS. Right now, I’m working on my PhD project on the impact of alien birds on native avifauna in Europe.
