Modelling, Evidence and Policy

We use numerical and conceptual approaches to provide objective evidence for use in management and policy making.

Our research

We investigate complex biological, medical, ecological and socio-ecological systems. We engage with policy processes.

We collaborate with experts from academic and non-academic sectors to maximise the value of our research. We address real-world challenges.

We collect data and model processes for ecosystems. We're looking at where biology, environment and decision-making interact.

Our impact on ecosystems policy

Key focusses are:

  • conflict and synergies between human objectives and conservation interests
  • co-creation of research to inform global biodiversity policy processes, especially those on species conservation
  • modelling disease in wildlife, livestock and human systems to identify pathways to mitigate disease

Our group

We follow a joint research and teaching agenda. It reflects shared interests in modelling, evidence and policy. We look at how to integrate across those in a neat pipeline.

Global impact

Our research takes us across the globe as we gather data to help conserve ecosystems and protect vulnerable species by informing policy. The map shows the global impact our work is having.
