Dr Bradley Cain
I joined Manchester Metropolitan University in 2014 as a lecturer in Molecular Ecology & Conservation Biology. I have an interest in using molecular and ecological techniques to answer applied conservation questions. Much of my research focusses on sub-Saharan Africa, where I work on a diverse range of projects including the impact of fencing elephants, disease transmission at the wildlife-livestock interface, bush meat, reintroductions and translocations, human-wildlife conflict and the factors mediating reproductive output in both black and white rhinoceros. I also have an interest in applying molecular techniques to understand species biology and population structure in terrestrial and marine organisms.
