Arash Ghoddousi

Visiting Scientist

I am a Research Fellow at the Conservation Biogeography Lab. The focus of my research is in understanding and improving the effectiveness of protected areas and law enforcement mechanisms, offering insight into human-wildlife conflict and poaching, as well as, improving methods in monitoring large mammals. I am particularly interested in the conservation of big cats and mountain ungulates with a special focus on southwest Asia, the Caucasus and Central Asia. I also contribute to teaching various conservation and biogeography courses. I have close collaborations with conservation organizations around the world and consult on several projects (e.g., IUCN, WWF).
