My first graduate degree was in management, followed by a professional degree in accountancy and a career in auditing. I then decided to change direction and went on to do an MRes in Environmental Biology at the University of St Andrews, followed by a DPhil at UCL on model-based approaches to understanding wild meat harvesting in Central Africa. I started a Postdoc in predicting global biodiversity with mechanistic simulation models at Centre for Biodiversity and Environment Research in Tim Newbold’s group in September 2019.

Research Summary

My research interests lie in the areas of ecological modelling and biodiversity conservation. I am particularly interested in how biodiversity will fare under future land-use and climate change scenarios, such as the Shared Socioeconomic Pathways scenarios, and in translating these future biodiversity impacts into policy relevant indicators of species richness and abundance. My focus is on using mechanistic simulation modelling, such as the Madingley general ecosystem model, to make predictions of distribution and change in species biodiversity across the globe. I have also worked in areas such as bushmeat harvesting in Afrotropical forests, adaptive management, species richness in urban areas and analysing biotelemetry data in Antarctic fur seals.
