Dr. Kaitlyn Gaynor is an Assistant Professor in the departments of Zoology and Botany, based in the Biodiversity Research Centre and affiliated with the Interdisciplinary Biodiversity Solutions Collaboratory. Research in the Gaynor Lab examines the effects of human activity on global biodiversity, with emphases on (1) the behavioural responses of animals to human presence, (2) the effects of anthropogenic disturbance on predator-prey and other species interactions, and (3) the socio-ecological dynamics of conservation and coexistence. This work involves large-scale data synthesis and meta-analyses, and local field studies in North America and Africa.
