|dr. Jasper Arend Jan Eikelboom MSc MA
Postdoctoral Researcher at the Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Group, Wageningen University, Netherlands. Research about the thermo-ecology and predator-prey dynamics of tropical ungulates, focusing on movement ecology and artificial intelligence. Initiator and leader of international research collaboration with 38 ecologists and conservationists on the behavioural thermoregulation of savanna grazers and mixed-feeders in the face of climate change, using tracking data from 999 individual animals of 15 different species.
PhD Candidate at the Resource Ecology Group, Wageningen University, Netherlands. Research on animal movement with the goal to infer the animals' internal state and surrounding environmental conditions. A hypotheses-free and data-driven study aimed at a deep and fundamental understanding of animal movement, but with an immediate goal to automatically detect poachers in a South African nature reserve with sensor-tagged ungulates connected through an IoT LoRa-network.
