Research interests

I am a conservation scientist with strong spatial modelling skills and specific experience in spatial ecology, evidence-based conservation management, predictive modelling, conservation translocations and ecosystem dynamics modelling. My overarching goal is to conduct research with applications to conservation management. Within that scope I thoroughly enjoy developing and integrating a diverse array of quantitative analyses, methodologies and concepts to inform biodiversity conservation.
