I am a conservation scientist at the University of Queensland, Australia, primarily interested in how we, as scientists, can make meaningful contributions to halting the global biodiversity crisis. My research aims to achieve a less biased view of the biodiversity crisis and its solutions, focusing in particular on the following three aspects: (i) understanding biases in existing knowledge and their drivers, (ii) overcoming gaps in knowledge with modelling approaches, and (iii) better informing conservation decisions with evidence. Recent topics include: identifying spatial, temporal and taxonomic gaps in biodiversity information, modelling changes in global wetland biodiversity, quantifying biodiversity status using multiple data sources, and transcending language barriers in conservation science (the TRANSLATE project).
