New subject editor: Ezequiel Fabiano

Submitted by editor on 31 March 2021.

My name is Ezequiel Fabiano and I recently joined the Wildlife Biology Journal as a subject editor. I am humble and excited about this opportunity of contributing towards the publication of articles through this journal.

I have a diverse background: my BSc Degree was in Environmental Biology and Computer Science, followed by an MSc in Environmental Management with a specialisation in Protected Area Management which I completed in 2007. I went on to complete my PhD in Zoology at the Pontificia Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, where I studied the historical and contemporary demography of cheetah in Namibia, in 2013.

A cross-cutting theme across this academic life has been a focus on biodiversity monitoring at the population and genetic level. Between 2004 and 2015, I worked as research assistant at the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia. Later on, I joined the academia, and expanded my research to focus on disturbance effects on ecosystem functions, population genetics of ungulate and spatial distribution of wildlife. I am particularly interested in long-term ecological research.

Aside from my work, I like traveling and spending time outdoors with family and friends.
