Conservation biologist, University of Otago

I am an ecologist and conservation biologist who values cross-disciplinary research. I have two main research themes:
human dimensions of conservation, including cultural management of resources, and traditional ecological knowledge; evolutionary ecology, and especially foraging behaviour, including isotope and nutrient analyses of diet.
