I’m an Australian landscape ecologist currently working as a Post Doctoral researcher within the McGill Sustainability Systems Initiative (MSSI) and the Department of Geography, at McGill University, Canada. I am also a member of The Environment & Livelihoods Lab and The Bennett Lab.
My research focuses on understanding how humans and nature interact with each other, and using this knowledge to identify actions that we can implement to sustainably manage landscapes – where human, environmental and economic health can be achieved simultaneously both now and for future generations.
Within this, much of my research focuses on ecosystem services – the physical and mental well being benefits that we receive from ecosystems (such as air quality regulation, carbon storage, food, water and recreation). In particular, I explore the social and environmental factors that affect the type of ecosystem services people can receive across landscapes, as well as how different policies and management actions affect the type of ecosystem services people receive from landscapes and the amount of ecosystem services the landscape can provide.
Within the realm of human-nature interactions, my other research interests include understanding human-nature interactions specifically within urban landscapes, and how changing human actions and behaviour across landscapes and regions affect both ecosystem services and biodiversity. My Research page contains more information on these topics and my research. This site also contains information about my academic background and publications.
