I am a computational ecologist and conservation scientist, working to improve conservation decisions, especially in polar regions. I am interested in how biodiversity responds to large-scale stressors (such as climate change) in the past, present and future, and how understanding this can inform policy and conservation management.

I am currently a third-year PhD student at the University of Cambridge working with Prof. William Sutherland and Dr. Tatsuya Amano to assess the effectiveness of protected areas on waterbirds. My previous research has included studies of conservation and environmental change in both the Arctic and Antarctic.

Most of my work is modelling based, and I am experienced with species distribution models, population models, mixed effects models and Bayesian hierarchical models. I am fluent in R, proficient in Python, and have significant expertise in large dataset management, high performance computing and GIS.

I am passionate about ensuring that my work extends beyond academia and have collaborated with The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), WWF via The Living Planet Index, Wetlands International and The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
