I am an ecologist with broad interests in spatial patterns and conservation biology. Research in my group covers a wide range of subjects, but development and application of novel quantitative methods, particularly those involving spatial analyses, are a unifying theme whether working in the field or using derived datasets. Together, members of my lab work on projects both fundamental and applied, in the UK and overseas. In the UK we are working both to understand the fundamental demographic processes that generate range limits and to apply this knowledge to predict impacts from climate change, whilst in Africa we are studying both the fundamental drivers of the savannah biome and undertaking applied research to reduce illegal activities in protected areas.
Current group members are:
