Short biography

My research focuses on the impacts of biodiversity loss, and societal responses to the biodiversity crisis, including the transition to a green economy. I have a particular interest in analysing the landscape-scale dynamics of biodiversity and ecosystem services. I have coordinated a number of international, collaborative research projects, principally in Latin America, but also in East and West Africa, Central and SE Asia, and in the UK. I have produced over 150 research publications on conservation science and management, including books on biodiversity loss and conservation, forest ecology and tropical forest resources. I have also supervised more than 30 PhD and MPhil students. Recent research activities have included analysis of the impacts of ecological restoration on biodiversity and provision of ecosystem services, human impacts on forest biodiversity, and the effectiveness of protected areas in reducing biodiversity loss. This research has employed a range of spatial analysis and modelling approaches.
