When I finished my microbiology degree, I wanted to spend more time outside the lab, working on conservation issues. During my PhD studies, I was involved in various large carnivore projects. I enjoy learning about the complexity of large carnivore conservation and working towards better coexistence between people and wildlife. Within the LIFE Lynx project, I coordinate lynx-based tourism activities that benefit both local communities and lynx conservation. I love being outdoors, away from technology, and reading a good book just before I go to sleep.
