Background

I am an evolutionary ecologist interested in understanding how environmental change influences species interactions and wild populations. My previous research used interdisciplinary means to look at the trade-offs in Sub-Saharan African agriculture. Focusing particularly on the current and future effects of agricultural expansion on biodiversity loss, and the consequences this has for ecosystem functionality and small-holder farmer livelihoods in Sub-Saharan Africa.

At the RSPB I am working in Kazakhstan to develop new multi-taxa species monitoring plans using novel sampling methods to assess the effectiveness of the new Bokey-Orda Protected Area.
