Amy Williams Schwartz

Research student,


I'm a PhD researcher with Project Splatter studying the interactions between wildlife and roads.

My research interests include:

  • Citizen science and public engagement
  • Animal behaviour and how this can be studied through roadkill monitoring
  • Impacts of roads on wildlife, both direct (roadkill) and indirect (e.g. habitat fragmentation, disturbance)
