My primary research areas include methods for monitoring animals and their habitats, animal ecology, and conservation biology. By integrating drones, thermal imaging, LiDAR, and multispectral low-altitude remote sensing technologies, I aim to develop standardized, reproducible, and comprehensive ecological observation methods. This approach facilitates the acquisition of high-quality data on animal population distribution and abundance and environmental monitoring of habitat plant communities. My research focuses on investigating patterns of habitat selection by animals, evaluating habitat-carrying capacity, and exploring interspecies interactions between flora and fauna.
