Thomas W. Logan


I am a PGR based in the School of Biology at the University of Leeds. I am currently working with Dr Alastair Ward where we are investigating consensus based red deer management in the Borrowdale region of the Lake District.

I previously completed my Masters by research in Biological Sciences by studying the ecology and management of deer impact in Yorkshire from 2017-2019. Further, I completed my Undergraduate in Zoology at the University of Hull between 2014-2017.

Between my MSc and my PhD, I was a lecturer of Animal Science for the Royal Agricultural University and assisted in the management and development of degree programmes. My teaching interests were focussed on the mechanics of practical wildlife management strategies and how such methods are decided, communicated, and enacted upon by decision makers.

I also favour active teaching strategies for undergraduate statistics, and a hands-on approach (through dissections and workshops) for teaching comparative anatomy and physiology.

Research interests

I am interested in the ecology of terrestrial mammals, animal behaviour, adaptive wildlife management, human-wildlife conflicts, and both the biology and psychology of conservation.

Within this, I am interested in the role of stakeholders in conservation action and decision making, and the natural sciences in measuring success.
