Shelley Alexander, PhDPh.D. Geography, Spatial Ecology Department of Geography University of Calgary, Canada
Areas of Research
My research is diverse and focuses on carnivore conservation, specifically wild canids (coyotes and wolves, but also fox, painted dogs). I have a focus on welfare with respect to research methods and practice and interest in improving co-existence. All research programs have engaged Geospatial analysis as some component. My research is non-invasive, mixed methods (qualitative and quantitative) and addresses emergent issues in human-animal relationships. Full profiles available on my lab website www.ucalgary.ca/canid-lab
