Areas of Interest:

My research focusses on the impacts on environmental change on biodiversity and ecosystem services. To date I have worked in both tropical and temperate systems and focussed on the impacts of climate change and land-use change on avian populations and insect pollinator communities. More recently I have started working with different stakeholder communities including policy makers, non-government organisations, delivery agencies and land managers with a view towards enhancing land management for biodiversity conservation and enhancing ecosystem services.

Specific areas of interest include:

  • Quantifying the impacts of climate change and land-use change on biodiversity and ecosystem services
  • Exploring the interactions between drivers of biodiversity loss
  • Conservation of threatened and endangered species and populations
  • Knowledge Exchange to facilitate link between research and practical conservation

Current Projects:

  • NERC Knowledge Fellowship - Working together to add value: Enhancing land management for biodiversity and multiple ecosystem services (UKRI NERC 2019- 2022)
  • PoshBee - Pan-European assessment, monitoring, and mitigation of stressors on the health of bees (EU H2020 2018-2023)

Completed Projects:

  • SUPER-B - Sustainable Pollination in Europe (EU COST Action, 2014-2018)
  • LIBERATION - Linking farmland biodiversity to ecosystem services for effective ecofunctional intensification (EU FP7 2014-2017)
  • NERC Knowledge Exchange Impact Accelerator Fellowship - Role of biodiversity in improving and enhancing human health and well-being (2014-2015)
  • IPI Agriland - Linking Agriculture and land-use change to pollinator populations (2011-2014)

PhD Students:

  • Teresa Robinson: Population ecology of the endangered endemic Mauritius Fody 2016-2021 (Part funded by University of Reading bursary)
  • Alice Haughan: Exploring the interaction between climate and land use change and the resulting impact on ecosystems - 2017 -2021 (QMEE CDT)
  • Kelly Jowett: Modelling landscape quality and configuration effects on natural enemy communities and the provision of pest regulation services - 2017-2020 (Rothamsted-Reading Alliance)
  • Elena Cini: New tools for improving Bee Health - 2018-2021 (EU H2020 - PoshBee)
  • Mitigating risks to pollination services caused by climate change 2019-2022 (Waitrose CTP)

Teaching: I regularly act as guest lecturer on several modules including

  • AP3AE75 - Wildlife and Farming
  • APMA96 - Plants, Greenspace and Urban Sustainability
  • AP2A57 - Methods in Ecology and Environmental Management
  • ISLI - International Study and Language Institute's Pre-sessional Programme to learn English
  • DP1AP - Part I Research Skills

Professional Activities:

  • Fellow of the Higher Education Academy
  • Member of Conservation Science Advisory Council for A Rocha International
