Researcher biography

Dr. Matthew Holden is a theoretical ecologist and applied mathematician using dynamic models and decision theory to improve conservation planning. He is especially interested in determining the most cost effective management actions when conservation benefits depend on how humans modify their behaviour in response to policy. Some of his projects include: determining the importance of economic market information for protecting poached wildlife, quantifying the value of urban nature reserves as leverage to support future conservation projects, and developing optimal monitoring strategies for invasive and threatened species.
