I work as conservation scientist to provide knowledge about the ecology and conservation status of bird species in a wide variety of ecosystems around the world.
The goal of my work is to achieve effective conservation of globally threatened species and their habitats through collaboration with partner organisations in the global network of BirdLife International.
My role is to use robust scientific approaches to monitor populations, identify the causes for population declines, and develop and test effective management solutions that are practically feasible and benefit threatened species.
My current work portfolio includes seabirds, raptors, songbirds, and a wide range of invasive species which threaten the native biodiversity of remote islands.
