I co-ordinate the State of Nature Partnership, a large group of organisations involved in conservation evidence or delivery in the UK and its Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories.
Our work aims to understand the status and trends of a broad spectrum of species and habitats and the underlying environmental variables which drive changes in these, including conservation action.
Our key publication is the State of Nature report, first published in 2013 and again in 2016. I am also involved in the development of new biodiversity indicators - helping assess progress towards national and international conservation targets.
Before joining the RSPB in 2012, I conducted my PhD research investigating the causes of the population decline and trialling conservation solutions for an island endemic, the St Helena plover.
