Internationally systematic reviews have been advocated as the best way forward to tackle complicated environmental management problems with lots of disparate data (following medical research). We will assess the utility of this approach.

My research is focused on decision making and policy development for environmental issues, by drawing upon principles and tools from economics and conservation science.

I'm currently based at the Fenner School of Environment and Society at the Australian National University. My PhD aims to examine the role of economic policy instruments in biodiversity conservation and natural resource management, with a particular focus on biodiversity and carbon offsets.

I am involved in a number of projects with the NERP Environmental Decisions Hub, including:

- An examination of the relative effectiveness of biodiversity offsets for conservation (Read More...

My research focus is in two main areas:
1. Landscape ecology (Project 1.4a), particularly

~ What affects meso-scale diversity in altered landscapes: how different large-scale patterns of clearing, fire, forest management alter the capacity of landscapes to support species and conversely, how these patterns can be manipulated to increase meso-scale diversity; and

~Processes underlying patterns of individual species distribution in human-modified landscapes, such as resource availability and interspecific interactions (for example, with aggressive competitors)

2. Conservation policy, particularly development of defensible and transparent systems for accounting for conservation gains and losses such as in biod ...
