Researcher biography

Alex is a PhD student working with Professor Jonathan Rhodes and Dr Laura Sonter in the Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation Science at The University of Queensland. He received an undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Philosophy, and a Master of Environment degree from Griffith University, where his thesis focused on the impacts climate change is having on koalas in Brisbane. 

His current work will focus on developing new knowledge on the consequences of interregional flows of the benefits of people receive from natural ecosystems for the global distribution of ecosystem service benefits. The project will also attempt to deliver novel approaches for predicting the global distribution of ecosystem service benefits under alternative land use scenarios and policy settings in a highly connected world.
