  • I am scholar of the SCGIS 2014. My professional career as a biologist started in 2004 while I was still an undergraduate student of biology at the university. I was involved in different studies including wildlife radio telemetry about home range and movements. From 2003 to 2006 worked as an intern researcher in Ikh Nart Nature Reserve in Mongolia which was carried out jointly by Mongolian Academy of Sciences and Denver Zoo Foundation. I was responsible for collecting radio telemetry of Argali (Ovis ammon) and Siberian Ibex (Capra Sibirica). I also analyzed home range, movement and seasonal herd size by collected data. While working from 2006 to 2009 as a laboratory assistant in Biology department of Mongolian State University of Education my duties included lab preparatory work as well as teaching zoology laboratory classes for freshmen and sophomores. Since 2009, I am working as an assistant field biologist of The Nature Conservancy of Mongolia country program. TNC Mongolia program is working to support effective management of Tosonkhulstai Nature Reserve. Over the last 2 years, I am conducting a scent station survey for carnivores and grassland health survey for Mongolian marmot in Tosonkhulstai Nature Reserve in Eastern Mongolia. Now, I will continue my research in Tosonkhulstai Nature Reserve and apply the GIS knowledge for the ongoing wildlife monitoring efforts.
