About the Project
This project offers an opportunity to work on pressing and large-scale conservation questions using big databases and applying diverse modelling approaches; thus, providing an opportunity to develop very transferable skills. The expected outcomes included publications in the scientific literature as well as the potential to engage with policy makers and managers to use the research findings in conservation legislation and practice.
The supervisor is a lecturer at the University of Reading with expertise in the topic and very interested in mentoring motivated and passionate students (more on Dr. Manuela Gonzalez Suarez can be found on her personal website: https://sites.google.com/site/manuelagonzalezsuarez/Home)
