Research Profile

My research focusses on the complex relationships between people and nature on which our well-being ultimately depends. I am particularly interested in understanding how anthropogenic disturbance influences biodiversity and the provision of the ecosystem goods and services that benefit people at different scales, especially within the context of forest-rich and multifunctional tropical landscapes. I am currently working on the Agrisys Tanzania research project, funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), and in collaboration with colleagues based in Tanzania, Kenya, the UK and Australia. Previously, I had the opportunity to work on interdisciplinary research projects in the Amazon forest, where I conducted my PhD research, and in Europe.
