My research interests centre around conservation science, with a specific focus on macroecology and community ecology. Together, I am driven by a desire to increase our understanding of what species and ecosystems are most at risk, why some are more resilient or vulnerable than others, where environmental pressures are most impactful, and how this knowledge can actively inform policy and the prioritisation of interventions to preserve and restore biodiversity.
I currently work within the Community and Landscape Ecology (CaLE) Lab led by Dr Cristina Banks-Leite as part of the Grantham Institute’s Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet Doctoral Training Programme. Here, my research involves assessing the benefits of large-scale restoration for biodiversity in the Amazon Rainforest and explores potential priorities for restoration globally.
