Reyhane Rastgoo

Conservation Biologist Interested in Human Dimensions of Wildlife


I am Reyhane Rastgoo, a conservation biologist with a robust academic foundation. My educational journey, culminating in a bachelor's degree in Environmental Science and a master's in Biodiversity Conservation from the University of Tehran, has instilled in me a profound understanding of environmental dynamics. My expertise lies in quantitative and qualitative social research, with a particular fascination for the complexities of human-wildlife conflict. My aspiration is to contribute to this field through impactful research that promotes coexistence between human and wildlife.
