Researcher biography

I am a PhD candidate and for my project I am using systematic conservation planning to prioritise the conservation of ecosystem services at different scales (i.e., local – pollination, national – carbon sequestration and water supply) in agricultural landscapes. The main outcome is to provide a framework to support policy-makers and spatial planners for conservation in Costa Rica and Colombia, which are my case study models. I am under the supervision of Associate Professor Eve McDonald-Madden, Dr Rebecca Runting and Professor Margaret Mayfield.
