My research focuses on the impacts on environmental change on biodiversity and ecosystem services. To date I have worked in both tropical and temperate systems and focussed on the impacts of climate change and land-use change on avian populations and insect pollinator communities. More recently I have started working with different stakeholder communities including policy makers, non-government organisations, delivery agencies and land managers with a view towards enhancing land management for biodiversity conservation and enhancing ecosystem services.
Specific areas of interest include:
Quantifying the impacts of climate change and land-use change on biodiversity and ecosystem services
Exploring the interactions between drivers of biodiversity loss
Conservation of threatened and endangered species and populations
Knowledge Exchange to facilitate link between research and practical conservation
