I am Course Leader for MSc Applied Ecology, where I teach landscape ecology, ecological surveying and applied conservation. I also supervise posgraduate research projects, including PhDs in areas as diverse as surveying mammals, the role of citizen science in modern-day ecological research, plant biogeography and amphibian conservation. I am also a highly active researcher and publishes regularly in international peer-reviewed journals, as well as writing popular science articles and disseminating research at conferences. I involve postgraduate students in my research work wherever possible.
