About me

I did a PhD on ecological and anthropogenic change in plant and animal communities with a focus on the analysis and modelling of spatio-temporal patterns to reveal hidden information on processes in complex ecosystems (reality!). In 2016 I was a Dean’s Awardee and also received a grant to investigate how analytical methods from astrophysics can be applied to ecological systems, such as forests and treefall. As part of my active role in group management and development, I completed a scholarship-funded Advanced Leadership Programme from the National Excellence and Leadership Initiative (NEELI) Australia in 2016. I have also published on the benefits of using technology to improve the connection between people and nature. As part of the CABAH team, I am motivated to use my skills in conceptualisation and development of ecological models to improve forecasts of future change using both prehistoric and contemporary data sources.

Key interests

  • global change biology
