Dr George Swan

Dr George SwanI am a multidisciplinary researcher with a particular interest in the causes and consequences of disagreements over wildlife management. My PhD research (completed in 2017) was focused on understanding conflicts surrounding predation and game shooting interests. I have an MSc in Conservation Science from Imperial College London (2011) and a BSc in Wildlife Conservation from the University of Kent (2009). I have also worked as a wildlife guide in Scotland and have volunteered on conservation projects in the Himalayas and New Zealand.

I have also worked on the domestic dogs and guinea worm project, which is providing evidence in order to prevent the spread of Guinea worm, a parasite that can affect both dogs and humans. Specifically, my research explored the diet of dogs by analysing the stable isotope ratios of their whiskers.
