Our Team

Adeel Kazam

Hi! I am an ecologist and wildlife conservationist, serving as an Assistant Director Wildlife at Punjab Wildlife and Parks Department in Pakistan. In my role, I am responsible for the protection, preservation, conservation, and management of wild species in Punjab. My research primarily centers around conservation-related scenarios involving wild species, including bats, and I am extremely passionate about working in the fields of wildlife, ecology, and conservation biology

Ahmad Bilal

Hi! I am an ecologist with a strong passion for wildlife conservation and the restoration of natural habitats. My primary areas of expertise are behavioral ecology and conservation biology, with a particular interest in studying bats. I am committed to deepening my understanding of these captivating creatures and discovering ways to safeguard and preserve them for generations to come

Mamoona Arshad

Hi! I am a MPhil scholar at Chulalongkorn University in Thailand, where I am currently pursuing research in Ecological Niche Modeling (ENM). My research project is centered around investigating the correlation between species distribution and environmental suitability derived from models, while also examining the factors that impact the strength of this relationship. Through my work, I hope to deepen our understanding of the complex interactions between species and their environment, and contribute to the development of effective conservation strategies.

Mudasar Hussnain

Hello! I am a Ph.D. Scholar in the Department of Wildlife and Ecology at the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Pakistan.  My research aims to comprehend how human activities disrupt the environment, leading to changes in mammalian communities such as their composition, demographics, and health. I am particularly interested in disease ecology, where I study how anthropogenic disturbance can increase the likelihood of pathogen transmission between hosts.  In the long term, my goal is to investigate how human manipulation of the environment can have adverse effects on wildlife health, the prevalence of zoonotic diseases, and their dynamics in wildlife populations.

Abdul Ali

Hi! I am prospective PhD Scholar at University of Georgia, USA. I have deep interest in wildlife conservation and a passion for mitigating the impacts of infectious diseases. I have dedicated my research towards studying the epidemiology of Brucellosis in large ruminants in Pakistan. In addition to my research, I am also deeply fascinated by bats and their role in disease transmission, as well as their unique biology and behavior. Through my work, I hope to contribute to the field of wildlife conservation and find new ways to prevent the spread of infectious diseases in both animal and human populations.

Wajahat Ali

Hi! I am a Ph.D. scholar in the Department of Forestry and Wildlife Management at the University of Haripur, Pakistan. I am currently engaged in various research projects focused on bats and other wild species. Throughout my academic journey, I have gained a comprehensive understanding of wildlife and natural sciences, including subjects such as Zoology, Ecology, Wildlife, and Environmental Science. As a passionate advocate for preserving nature, I am actively involved in all initiatives aimed at protecting our environment.

Muhammad Armaghan Shahzad

I am a veterinarian with an MPhil in Microbiology and Immunology, and my research interests include Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), Zoonoses, One Health, and Microbial Forensics. Over the past few years, my interest has shifted towards wildlife and its role in transmitting AMR and zoonotic diseases. With increased anthropogenic activities, interactions between wildlife (especially bats), humans, and livestock have increased, leading to an increased potential for zoonotic diseases related to bats. Therefore, bats represent a significant potential source of emerging infectious diseases. As a part of Batcon Pakistan, I am motivated to increase my understanding of the ecology and conservation of wildlife, especially bats.
