Gabriel is a landscape ecologist. His research interest sits at the intersection of environmental science, natural and agricultural systems and aims to understand the processes that influences biodiversity conservation, climate and land use change. Gabriel uses modelling techniques to predict the impact of changes in land use and management practices on the environment.

He is currently a postdoctoral researcher on the FoodSEqual project funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Strategic Priorities Fund (SPF) and reports to Dr Tom Sizmur. The FoodSEqual project adopts an interdisciplinary approach to learning and sharing knowledge on how to co-produce healthy and sustainable food systems in disadvantaged communities.

He has previously worked as a senior research associate at Lancaster Environment Centre, Lancaster University, where he worked on the IFAD-funded project that aimed to incorporate incentive-based interventions in smallholder production systems; and the BBRSC-funded project that assessed ways of restoring African degraded grasslands through the exploitation of plant diversity.

He has also worked as a scientific officer at African Regional Institute for Geospatial Information Science and Technology (Ile-Ife, Nigeria) and was involved in teaching, several consultant jobs and served as a project manager for the UN International charter space and major disasters.

His PhD thesis assessed the impact of climate and land use change on the distribution of critically endangered plants on Madagascar using a spatially-explicit modelling approach.
