Hello

…and welcome to my blog! I have recently joined the Quantitative and Applied Ecology Group at the University of Melbourne’s School of Botany. This website will be a communication point for news relating to my research: projects, publications, presentations and more. Despite the “Botany” affiliation, I am principally immersed in integrative, big-picture thinking squarely targeted at complex environmental problems. My set of interests straddle the gulf that traditionally divides quantitative and qualitative modes of enquiry, and I am particularly interested in conflicts between science and policy/management in practice. I think that the rise of unprecedented global change requires innovative, eyes-wide-open, critical-faculties-thoroughly-intact responses to the challenges we face, that may fly in the face of convention, prescriptive scientific application and dogmatic adherence to disciplinary boundaries.

Given that it’s early days and (for now) this blog is strikingly devoid of content, I shall endeavour to populate this space with regular updates on my activities. In the meantime, if you are interested in my work, feel free to contact me. I’d love to hear from you.
