Patrick Freeman's research interests lie at the intersection of wildlife ecology, environmental change, and conservation and management, particularly in African contexts. How are animals responding to and navigating drastically changing environments - whether those changes are directly or indirectly related to humans and their impacts? How can we use new technologies like remote sensing or genomics to provide information to decision-makers about these responses? And finally, how do we leverage these technologies and evolving modes of conservation to craft a future where wildlife and humans have enough space, resources, and support to thrive? It's these questions that occupy Patrick's thoughts as he crafts plans for his dissertation research.
