Personal profile


I am a conservation biologist. I use population modelling to understand and propose management actions to conserve animal populations under global change, from native Galapagos rodents to Malaysian orangutans. My research has included fisheries metapopulation modelling, spatial population dynamics and effects of connectivity, susceptibility of social species (particularly bats) to Allee effects, and effects of Allee effects on population extinction dynamics. Please see my website for more details.
