Clara Lepard is reading for the MSc (Res) in Zoology. She is a behavioural ecologist interested in predator-prey dynamics in the context of human-dominated landscapes, with a focus on large carnivores and their conservation.
Her research seeks to model the decision-making of large carnivores to answer questions about how specific human activities may impact those carnivores’ behaviours and potentially deter conflict-inducing livestock predation. She is a member of the WildCRU at the University of Oxford and an alumna of the RECaP Laboratory and the Li Laboratory at Michigan State University.
