Dr Elizabeth Preston

Research Interests

I have broad research interests in conservation, animal behaviour and ecology, and have worked on a number of species around the world, including Lions, Elephants, Spotted Hyenas and Banded Mongooses. I am interested in behavioural ecology and how this can help inform successful conservation management and policy. Currently, I am part of the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme working alongside Jorgelina Marino and Claudio Sillero to manage the long term datasets of the programme and answer behavioural and ecological questions that can inform conservation management of the species, and the wider Afro-alpine ecosystem. Specifically I am investigating long term population trends in the species, in relation to disease outbreaks, and starting new work using social networks to investigate sociality, disease transmission and other conservation questions.
