ABOUT ME

My key role is to design robust scientific approaches to identify the causes of species' declines and develop and test practical solutions.

 

My current work programme involves seabirds, raptors, songbirds, an ibis, and a variety of invasive species that threaten the biodiversity of islands.

 

Besides conducting research, I also provide training in data management and analysis, and numerous field skills for many of the partners I work with.
