My research aims at providing regulators with advice on how to sustainably manage wildlife tourism. I am adopting an integrated approach in order to find management solutions that allow the industry to stay profitable without overexploiting the wildlife it targets. I use unconventional data sources and mathematical and statistical models make predictions on which regulatory strategies are the most likely to be sustainable at different spatial scales.
