roland-kaysI am a zoologist with a broad interest in ecology and conservation, especially of mammals.  I study research questions that are scientifically interesting but also have real-world relevance through educational or conservation value. I am an expert in using new technologies to study free-ranging animals, especially to track their movement with GPS tags and camera traps. I combine this high-tech work with traditional methods, collecting data through field work and studies of museum collections.
