I am an ecologist interested in the practical applications of ecological research for biodiversity conservation.
My primary areas of interest are:
• Agriculture & biodiversity – the impacts of changing agricultural land-use on biodiversity, particularly in marginal agricultural systems
• Ecological-economic modelling – how socio-economic factors influencing land-use change affect biodiversity, and developing ways to reconcile the two
• Agricultural economics
• Habitat use and management – how organisms make use of habitats, particularly for foraging, and identifying management practices which promote the availability of foraging resources
