Amy Williams Schwartz
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)
