SICCS postdoc supported by prestigious Marie Curie Fellowship

Andrew Abraham, a postdoc in Chris Doughty’s Megabiota lab, was recently awarded a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellowship to work at Aarhus University, Denmark. Andrew will work with Dr Elizabeth le Roux ( to develop an ecological model that can accurately quantify the transport of nutrients by animals living in diverse landscapes across the world. The model will first be validated in southern Africa, where animal communities include predators, scavengers and megaherbivores, before being applied to European rewilding sites. With robust scientific forecasting generated through this project, wild animals can be used to support ecological restoration attempts that are more effective, efficient and natural.
