Overview

Conserving biodiversity is essential for maintaining the health of the environment that supports human life and wellbeing. But the task will only get harder, with human pressures increasing in magnitude and ubiquity. My research tackles questions central to this challenge. I work on understanding why species respond the way they do to landscape change and how even highly modified landscapes can be managed to be more biodiverse. Sound conservation policy is essential if we are to apply ecological knowledge to reduce and ultimately halt biodiversity declines. Given that at least some development that damages biodiversity is inevitable, offsetting damage in one place with biodiversity improvement in another may be our only option. My research seeks to improve the practice and policy of conservation policy such as biodiversity offsetting. I collaborate with a broad network of individuals and organisations including government and non-government bodies to help achieve effective uptake of research findings into policy and environmental management. My research lab is affiliated with both the Landscape Ecology and Conservation Group in GPEM and the Environmental Decisions Hub funded by the National Environmental Research Program.
