Liudmila Osipova

I have started my PhD this year as a part of Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate Program between two Universities: Georg-August University of Gottingen, Germany and Bangor University, UK. I have a background in the environmental changes modeling and remote sensing data analysis. My goal now is to improve my knowledge in the field of movement ecology so I could use all my skills for better conservation management implimentation.

I am planning to work with African elephants (Loxodonta africana) movement data for revealing spatio-temporal movement patterns of the species within its natural habitat space using empirical environmental and telemetry data. The study region is a borderlands between Kenya and Tanzania and includes areas with different protection status, such as national parks and human-dominated areas under agriculture. Understanding how elephants use this highly heterogeneous landscape and what are the most important movement corridors between the resources patches may benefit the conservation efforts at the borderlands and alleviate human-wildlife conflict.
