Research Fellow and proleptic Lecturer in Ecological Data Science

I’m an ecologist and conservationist who uses data science to understand and predict how biodiversity responds to global change and how best it can be conserved in the Anthropocene. Recently, I’ve been using networks, representing mutualistic or antagonistic interactions between species, to address these issues at the community scale.


Currently, I’m a Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 Research Fellow at the University of Exeter, working with Christopher Kaiser-Bunbury on the effects of invasive species on plant-pollinator networks.
