Researcher biography

My research is at the interface of ecosystem and climate scienceclimate-biodiversity interaction and ecosystem dynamics are key themes. Much of my work is concerned with landscape-scale patterns and processes, and the impact on biodiversity of various threats, from global change to human land use, and resource exploitation. Recent results have global significance for conservation planning and consequences for biodiversity, ranging from future marine turtle habitat to tropical forest protected areas. My focus on human-nature interactions, including how we manage our natural resources, aims to inform protection of people and livelihoods.
