I am interested in understanding the biotic, abiotic and anthropogenic drivers that are responsible for determining species’ distributions and demography. I have worked on the North Atlantic LCC’s Designing Sustainable Landscapes project as one of the principal team members. The purpose of this project is to assess the capability of current and future landscapes and climate to provide integral ecosystems and suitable habitat for a suite of representative species, and provide guidance for strategic habitat conservation. I have also worked on other projects aimed at identifying factors that determine montane bird distributions and reproductive success along elevational gradients.
