I am a conservation ecologist by training and I apply a multi-dimensional approach to fostering safer shared spaces between people and elephants.  My research and conservation interventions are focused on minimising damages caused by elephants, preventing human casualties due to accidental encounters with elephants, and ensuring free movement to elephants in fragmented habitats. These science-based conservation actions are implemented as part of the Co-Existence Project  and are aimed to ensure peaceful co-existence between people and elephants in landscapes shared by both species.
