I work on primate and elephant spatial cognition and navigation. My main goal is to understand how animals travel in the wild and which aspects of their landscape affect their daily navigation. Differences in the landscape affect the navigational decision-making of wild animals. The increase in the human population has more than ever impacted how wild animals deal with their landscape, reflecting the species travel decision.
Geospatial techniques have proven over the years to be a powerful toolset to elucidate the role of the landscape in animal navigation. My work integrates empirical field observations, remote sensing, GIS, and geo-located data.
