Overview

I studied a BA in Geography at Girton College, Cambridge, and then completed my MSc in Ecology at Aberdeen University and completed my PhD (on the effects of topography and microclimate on chalk grassland ecology) at Durham University.  After a spell working for an environmental consultancy followed by several postdoctoral research contracts at Durham and Exeter Universities I was appointed lecturer in physical geography in 2016.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Biogeography
  • Spatial Ecology
  • Global Environmental Change
  • Conservation Ecology

Qualifications

PhD 2004 Ecology (Durham University)
MSc 1999 Ecology (Aberdeen University)
BA 1997 Geography (University of Cambridge)

Research

Research interests

My research often focuses on issues of spatial scale in the biosphere, and addresses two key questions: (i) how do drivers of change that are occurring at a global scale (e.g. climate change, habitat fragmentation, light pollution) affect plant and animal species at the finer scales of the individual or population – i.e. how does global environmental change scale down to the local level?; and (ii) how do physiological or behavioural responses to environmental change at the level of the organism affect ecological systems at higher levels of ecological complexity – i.e. how do individual effects scale up to determine the persistence and dynamics of populations and metapopulations, community stability and geographical species distributions and global patterns of biodiversity?
