Biography

I develop new theory and tools for improved conservation outcomes, built on multidisciplinary collaboration, scientific excellence and impact on policy and practice. My interests include global conservation policy, predicting the impacts of change on biodiversity and dependent human well-being, and making better conservation decisions. A major focus over the last decade has been the development of a new framework for understanding, quantifying and predicting risks to ecosystems, the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems, with demonstrated impacts on conservation policy and practice, at global and local levels.

Current transdisciplinary research projects include participatory research and conservation planning with Indigenous people and organizations on the Tiwi Islands; and collaborations with economists, social scientists and health experts to improve understanding of the linkages between the ecosystem health and human well-being.
