Clara is currently pursuing a MSc in Geography, Urban and Environmental studies and her supervisor is Dr Jochen Jaeger. Her research is currently titled, “Assessing the effectiveness of protected areas in Canada with respect to landscape fragmentation and connectivity, using a BACI study design". Her research interests are mainly regarding landscape fragmentation and the ability of animals to move through a certain landscape that has been influenced by humans. For her thesis, she is using geospatial analyses to monitor how this has changed for Canada’s National Parks since their designation, considering the parks are protected in order to keep them in an unimpaired state for future generations. She also has an interest in the structure of built-up areas and how they effect the natural environment.
