Jasper started to work on raptor migration for his master thesis in Ecology, Evolution and Nature Conservation at the University of Potsdam, Germany. His analysis considers weather phenomena as drivers of the migration timing and daily species composition of migrants in the Batumi bottleneck for the years 2008 till 2011. He is conducting the research supervised by Brecht Verhelst and Wouter Vansteelant with regular advice from researchers in Norway and Italy.
During his stay at BRC in 2011 in relation to this MSc. thesis, Jasper became very keen on the Georgian culture and believes in the approach of BRC as a multi-facetted conservation project. He is very enthusiastic to maintain the approach of raptor conservation, ecotourism and monitoring. In 2012 he became a member of the board to support and develop the projects of the BRC and coordinated the monitoring in autumn.
