Personlig profil

Meritförteckning

Miquel Torrents-Ticó is a PhD student at the Global Change and Conservation group (GCC) and a student member of the Helsinki Institute of Sustainability Science (HELSUS), University of Helsinki. He is member of the Hyaena Specialist Group from the IUCN Species Survival Commission and a National Geographic Explorer. His interest in conservation has grown along with the ever-increasing conflicts between humans and wildlife. His main interests lay on the human-hyena conflict. In his PhD, he takes an interdisciplinary approach to understand the human-hyena interactions by investigating local attitudes and perceptions towards spotted hyenas, and comprehend spotted hyena ecology that links to the human-hyena conflict (e.g., animal movement, activity rhythm, stress hormone levels and diet across anthropogenic gradients). Most of the fieldwork is conducted in Sibiloi National Park (North Kenya) but also in Laikipia.

He completed his MSc in Conservation and Management of Biodiversity at the University of Barcelona in 2012. He was a guest scientist at the Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge. His interest in human-wildlife interactions took him around the world from tropical rain forests to arid deserts, where he worked with different species: Costa Rica (olive Ridley sea turtles), Ecuador (common woolly monkeys), South Africa (meerkats, Damaraland mole-rats), Botswana (large predators) and Namibia (chacma baboons).
