Researcher biography

I am a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Queensland and a researcher in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions (CEED), supervised by Prof Hugh Possingham and Dr Tara Martin. My research focuses on looking at the trade-offs and synergies in ecosystem services, food security and how to maximise both biodiversity and social livelihoods. My current projects include a national assessment of carbon, biodiversity and co-benefits for indigenous people within the carbon farming initiative, investigating the effects of leakage on conservation planning, and determining the role of small scale conservation efforts in agro-ecosystems.
