My name is Carol Bogezi and this is my professional site. I am currently working on some consulting contracts and seeking a full-time employment opportunity to apply my expertise to conservation program management and applied research. If you would like to connect with me, please email me at: email@example.com.
I earned my PhD in Environmental Science at the University of Washington’s School of Environment and Forest Sciences (SEFS). My Urban Ecology lab advisor Dr. John Marzluff secured a grant for the “Feasibility of a Wolf Economy” that formed the basis of my dissertation.
I perform interdisciplinary research on wildlife conservation issues integrating social, ecological, and geographic sciences. My dissertation focused on understanding human-carnivore interactions in Washington state, particularly wolves in the context of their recovery, and cougars in the context of their habitat and ranging needs overlap with human recreation and habitation.
Previously, I undertook ecological research on Crocodylus suchus in Kidepo National Park in northeast Uganda. This crocodile population was discovered at the easternmost extent of this subspecies’ range. I investigated the habitat occupancy within sub-basins in and around Kidepo.
