About me

I completed a BSc in Environmental Biology at University of London Wye College, followed by a PhD at the University of Surrey investigating environmental influences on the population ecology of amphibians in tropical forests.

Prior to joining UWE I worked in ecological consultancy on protected species, managed a biological station in the tropics, taught for the environmental charity Operation New World, and contracted for NGOs, universities, and statutory authorities.

At UWE I teach across ecology, biogeography, conservation and environmental themes. 

Area of expertise

My research directions address problems in ecology, populations, community dynamics, behaviour and conservation. I specialise in ecological statistics using model-based multivariate analysis, species distribution modelling, and modern population analysis, in both frequentist and Bayesian frameworks.

My style of research is highly collaborative, and I contribute to joint outputs with colleagues, students and independent researchers. My current investigations include;

  • Biogeography of Indian amphibians
  • Abundance and habitat use of tropical snakes
  • Animal behaviour both in-situ and ex-situ
  • Population ecology of sea turtles
  • Climate effects on amphibian survival
