Professor of Anthropology, Oxford Brookes University, UK
Catherine Hill is Professor of Anthropology in the Department of Social Sciences at Oxford Brookes University. Her research focuses on costs to people-wildlife
relationships, conservation conflicts, and implications for people’s perceptions of wildlife, biodiversity conservation and local communities. She
has also carried out research into humane, non-lethal crop protection methods for African smallholder farmers.
Currently she is involved in research projects in Uganda, Guinea Bissau, Madagascar and South Africa, exploring various aspects of people-primate coexistence, including the potential value of lemurs to local forest users, how chimpanzees and humans share forest spaces, chimpanzee-human interactions in agricultural landscapes, and baboons in urban and semi-urban environments. She is also researching aspects of human-wildlife interactions in the UK through projects with research students on people-red kite relationships and the socio-economic impacts of wild boar on their human neighbours.Back to members
