Where Are They Now?

We’ve noticed that many of our scholarship recipients travel the world to continue their careers. This is fantastic. We’re happy when the William Wishart award becomes a springboard to wildlife biology around the world.

Dr. Bogdan Cristescu graduated from the University of Alberta in 2013. But it was 4 years before this that the ACTWS recognized Bogdan’s exceptional work. He was awarded the Wishart graduate scholarship at our 2009 conference. This recognition has helped pave a career path that has crossed frontiers.

As a post-doc, Bogdan moved to Cape Town, South Africa to study predator conflicts with ranched cattle. And now he is at the University of California, Santa Cruz and studies mule deer / cougar interactions. We know the life of committed post-docs; Bogdan likely has more moves ahead of him and new lands to explore. photo: Bogdan Cristescu
