My research aims to understand how biodiversity is changing in response to recent environmental change, and to predict how biodiversity will change in future. I am also interested in the consequences of biodiversity change for human societies. To address these questions, my work centres around the development of large-scale models of biodiversity and ecosystems.
I completed my undergraduate degree in zoology and my PhD at the University of Nottingham.
My PhD focused on the development of species distribution models as a tool for understanding the impacts of climate on biodiversity.
I then completed a post-doctoral position at the World Conservation Monitoring Centre in Cambridge, developing global models of human impacts on biodiversity.
In 2015, I moved to UCL to continue this work, and in 2016 I was awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship.
