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 amphibian populations in tropical forests of Central America.

Prior to joining UWE I worked in ecological consultancy, managed a biological station in the tropics, taught for an environmental charity, 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, species distribution modelling, and population analysis, in both frequentist and Bayesian frameworks.

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

  • Biogeography and ecology of tropical herpetofauna
  • Animal behaviour both in-situ and ex-situ
  • Human perceptions about ecology
  • Climate effects on amphibian population dynamics
