My research specialty is Quantitative Ecology, with projects that currently focus on the study of landscape-scale impacts of human-induced disturbances on freshwater systems, and what can be done to restore these systems.
Quantitative ecology is the use of maths and statistics to try to make sense of our natural environment, or to try to make predictions about individuals, populations or ecosystems.
Currently, we spend a lot of money collecting data, but not getting maximal value from this investment. Through more advanced analytical approaches, we can often gain additional insight into what’s going on in these complex environments.
Some examples of my current research are included on the Research Projects page.
