Personal profile

Biography

I am a spatial scientist with interests in a wide range of environmental and ecological questions and have predominantly focused on coastal and marine environment. My ultimate goals are to understand and predict the impacts of environmental variability and change on social and ecological systems at local and global scales to support spatial planning & management. I have explored questions in a range of other fields, including hydrology and water resources, sustainable agriculture and food security. Therefore, my work integrates diverse disciplines including macro-ecology, climate science, oceanography, remote sensing, hydrology, and decision science to help answer relevant questions. Given the many large and diverse data sets that I work with, I am also involved in data science projects focused on developing tools for integrating, analysing and extracting information from multiple (often large) data sets more effectively, making it easier to include cross-disciplinary information in addressing complex environmental and ecological questions.
