Research Interests

My pronouns are he/him

I am a conservation scientist interested in how we can improve the uptake, effectiveness and efficiency of biodiversity conservation actions, to ensure they are delivering the conservation gains required to address the biodiversity crisis. My research has focussed in two major areas to present: 1) understanding how we can better engage, and improve the outcomes from private sector biodiversity management; and 2) how we can collect and better use evidence to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of actions to protect and restore biodiversity. My current role looks at the actions needed across the Mitigation & Conservation Hierarchy to reach global biodiversity goals, with a particular focus on the approaches taken by businesses to measure, avoid, reduce and compensate for their impacts. The research forms part of the Leverhulme Centre for Nature Recovery as part of the Integration work package.

I also work collaboratively with The Biodiversity Consultancy to develop research projects that cross the research-practice boundary.
