My role involves conducting spatial analyses to answer a wide range of ecological questions. I specialise in using GIS for handling, visualising and analysing a wide range of spatial datasets, including historic data, aerial photography and digitised field surveys. I also assist with data collection in the field, by conducting vegetation and pollinator surveys.
My research interests include:
- The use of spatial techniques to identify long term changes in habitat types
- Using spatial data and modelling to understand ecosystem services
- Examining threats and the potential for restoration in various types of habitat
