Alex Braczkowski - PhD Candidate
Supervisor: Martine Maron
Co Supervisor: Duan Biggs

My name is Alex Braczkowski and I'm a big cat biologist from Kwazulu-Natal, SA. I have researched lions in the Timbavati, leopards in the greater Knysna ecosystem and Zululand and the lesser known caracal in the Cape. In 2014 I graduated from the University of Oxford with a Masters degree examining aspects surrounding the hunting of leopards in Africa. Since leaving Oxford I have worked for Steve Winter as a photographic assistant and second cameraman for National Geographic's biggest ever magazine and television story on leopards and his magazine story on jaguars. I am also working towards my PhD at the University of Queensland in Australia, examining the economics and efficiency of monitoring and conserving big cats and other large carnivores in Africa.
