Sherry Young is a Ph.D Student in Biological Sciences at Simon Fraser University. Her work focus is on mountain ecosystem resilience in Central Asia. After a Master in Ecology at Umeā University with a specialty in arctic/boreal ecosystems and the use of camera traps, she enrolled in a snow leopard conservation project in Kyrgyzstan, Central Asia. She joined the Snow Leopard Trust (SLT) as a research assistant and participated in the deployment of camera traps across several regions in Kyrgyzstan. After a year in the field, she joined Dr. David Hik's research team to perform a PhD on mountain ecosystem resilience in Central Asia. Her interests also lie in comparing methods used to monitor wildlife across landscapes and how to build standardised protocols.
