My interests are diverse and include: (i) brown bear ecology and behaviour in the Cantabrian Mountains (NW Spain) and, more generally, brown bear populations in human-modified landscapes; (ii) large carnivore-human conflicts, in particular large carnivores attacks on humans; (iii) floater dynamics and natal/breeding dispersal; (iv) movement ecology; and (v) animal communication by visual signalling.
