Domenii de cercetare:

Conservarea diversitatii biologice/Biogeografie conservationista: modelarea distributiei speciilor (carnivore mari, reptile, amfibieni); istoria naturala a testoasei lui Hermann; planificarea sistematica a ariilor protejate; planificarea conservarii herpetofaunei si carnivorelor mari.

Evaluarea impactului asupra mediului: fragmentarea peisajelor, calitatea mediului urban.

Studii recente:

Studiile recente mele sunt legate de conservarea carnivorelor mari (urs, lup, ras) si testoasei lui Hermann. M-am implicat actiuni concrete de conservare, in modelarea distributiei habitatelor, a favorabilitatii acestora şi modificările aparute datorita amenintărilor cum ar fi fragmentarea si schimbările climatice.

Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it. (Henry David Thoreau, 1854, Walden)
