My research concerns the effects of human land use, climatic change and conservation management on populations of birds and other organisms. In particular, I attempt to measure and model the effects of agricultural development and management, disturbance, illegal killing, climatic change and conservation measures on the demography of bird populations. I then use the insights this provides to devise conservation programmes and strategies. With Andrew Balmford and Rosie Trevelyan, I am a founder and organiser of the annual Student Conference on Conservation Science in Cambridge which has been bringing early career-stage conservation scientists together since 2000.
