Dr Simon Pooley

Lambert Lecturer, Birkbeck University of London, UK

I am the Lambert Lecturer in Environment (Applied Herpetology) at Birkbeck University of London. My research interests are interdisciplinary, ranging across the fields of animal and historical geography, environmental humanities (history in particular), ethnozoology and conservation science. My research focuses on human-predator interactions, in particular the crocodilians. I am interested in histories and narratives of predator attacks; mapping social and ecological dimensions of human-crocodile encounters in space and time; testing theories on the influence of biophysical factors on the seasonality of croc bites on humans; and infographics as a means of exploring and communicating about conflictual human-predator relations.
