Co-chair IUCN/SSC Cat Specialist Group
I am a senior researcher at the University of Bern (Institute of Veterinary Virology) and leader of the KORA programme since 1996. I have been involved in research projects on carnivore ecology for 25 years and have supervised many master and doctoral theses in the frame of the Swiss carnivore projects. My main field of activity is the reintroduction of Eurasian lynx and the re-integration of this large carnivore into human dominated landscapes. I am integrated in many research and conservation programmes all over the world, and, as a carnivore and rabies specialist, involved in European projects on rabies epidemiology.
