MSU flies tiger research flag

MSU flies tiger research flag

Aug. 30, 2011

Students flocking back to campus will be greeted by a slice of CSIS research.

PhD candidate Neil Carter is gracing banners sprinkled across campus -- in this case across from Spartan Stadium -- taken while he was conducting research in January 2011 at the Chitwan National Park in Nepal.

Carter is working to understand how people and tigers move in respect to each other, both directly and indirectly. He also seeks a better understanding of how tigers’ behavior changes the behavior of their human neighbors and visa versa.

Watch Neil Carter's Spartan Saga.
