Quantitative analyses, conservation, palaeoecology

I am interested in making the most of our datasets to understand and conserve biodiversity in a rapidly changing world. My previous research was focused on the past, and what the fossil record can tell us about the future - I am now applying those skills to contemporary datasets. As a Conservation Science Analyst, I am involved in many different research projects across a broad range of questions in conservation science.
