Research interests

I am an ecologist and conservationist, with a strong interest in the responses of organisms (at individual, population and community levels) to anthropogenic changes in the biotic and abiotic components of their environment. I am keen to apply my skills in field-sampling species and interspecific interactions, and the complex analysis of large-scale and long-term datasets, to the study of biodiversity change on a rapidly changing planet. My previous research has ranged from analysis of community dynamics over periods of years or decades, to detailed single-species experimental and field studies. I am passionate about finding solutions that will allow species, and biodiversity as a whole, to thrive in the 21st century and beyond. Although much of my research to date has focussed on Lepidoptera, my interests are much broader, also including other insects, vertebrates and plants.
