Research theme

I collaborate with government officials, universities, NGOs, and local residents to seek practical measures to eliminate threats toward targeted species. I use both ecological approach to understand necessary resources for the population to survive and human dimensions approach to identify ways to practically conserve such resources. Through utilizing these approaches, I aim to reveal steps that need to be taken for conservation of species.
