Who are we?
The QMEE management team come from across the 5 lead institutions.
Tim Barraclough is Professor of Evolutionary Biology at Imperial College London and Director of QMEE. He works on models of speciation and evolutionary dynamics and statistical methods for delimiting species.
Richard Walters is Lecturer in Ecology and Evolution at the University of Reading and Deputy Director of QMEE. He works on thermal adaptation, extinction risk and ecological forecasting under environmental change.
Sandy Harrison is Professor of Global Palaeoclimates and Biogeochemical Cycles at the University of Reading and Director of Selection for QMEE. She works on global vegetation modelling and reconstructing past climates.
Samraat Pawar is Senior Lecturer at Imperial College London and the CDT Training Director. He is a theoretical ecologist who works on the metabolic theory of ecology and metabolically constrained ecological networks.
Steven White is QMEE lead at the NERC Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH). He works on mathematical models of population dynamics, ecology and evolution, including invasive species, insect vectors and pathogens.
Robin Freeman is QMEE lead at the Zoological Society of London (ZSL). His research spans many disciplines from understanding the status and trends of global biodiversity, the creation of new kinds of technology for monitoring and tracking animals in the wild, to remote fieldwork utilising those technologies and new methods for analysing and interpreting data.
