Researcher biography

I am an interdisciplinary scientist currently exploring the ecology in cities and pursuing questions around the ways humans benefit from nature under the current pressures of rapid urbanisation and other global changes. Supervised by Prof Richard Fuller, Prof Jonathan Rhodes, and Dr Felipe Suárez Castro, my PhD research specifically explores the spatial distribution of urban green spaces across the globe and also human-nature interaction in cities. 

I have extensive research interests and am working as a Research Technician on the translatE project led by Dr Tatsuya Amano, where we are seeking to understand how language barriers impede the application of science in conservation decision making and to assess the importance of scientific knowledge that is available in non-English languages.
