My research focuses on developing modelling approaches that can be used to guide the conservation of vulnerable and endangered populations. This involves understanding both the demographic processes that influence population extinction risk and recovery, and the social and economic decision-making processes that underpin conservation management.

I am interested in assessing the feasibility, efficacy, risks and co-benefits associated with climate intervention measures proposed to counteract anthropogenic climate change.

My Ph.D. project will investigate a recently proposed strategy, terrestrial enhanced weathering, which could potentially be used to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and offset ocean acidification.
