Ms Miranda Davis, M.Sc.
Miranda has a bachelor's degree from Binghamton University in New York State in Biology with a concentration in Ecology, Evolution and Behavior. She then spent a year working in Suriname, South America studying the ecology and behavior of primates. She then joined the Wildlife department at Virginia Tech University. While there, her research entailed using camera trapping technology to study large Neotropical carnivores (fieldwork in Belize, Central America). In 2009 she graduated with her Masters Degree from VT before enrolling in the Ph.D. program at Durham University in January 2010. Her Ph.D. research involves modelling the impacts of climate change on the population dynamics of European ungulates (namely roe deer and wild boar). She is particularly interested in elucidating the details of community-level population interactions across and within trophic levels and in using this knowledge to develop multi-species conservation programs.
