My main interests are carnivore interactions, particularly among wild canid (i.e., dog) species, and predator-prey relationships. I’m especially interested in how larger carnivores affect the ecology of smaller carnivores and their prey. Since 2009 I have focused on studying the ecology and conservation of dholes, an endangered large carnivore, in Southeast Asia. More generally, I'm interested in promoting conservation and sustainable development, especially through training and capacity building in developing countries.
 
I have been associated with the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU), University of Oxford, since 2004 as a postdoctoral researcher, initially as a Marie Curie Fellow. I am a member of IUCN Canid Specialist Group, along with the IUCN Dhole Working Group. I also am a member of the Society for Conservation Biology, American Society of Mammalogists, Ecological Society of America, and The Wildlife Society.
