My interests centre on the extinction of species and collapse of populations, topics which I investigate using a combination of mathematical models, microcosm experiments, and analysis of real world population data.
My previous work has looked at our ability to accurately gauge whether species extinct or extant, from a conservation perspective, as well as the potential effect temperature change can have on population persistence, and community structure.
My current work focuses on developing and testing early warning signals of population collapse, with a view to predicting regime shifts prior to their occurrence.
I am also continuing my work on conservation issues, and I am part of an international collaboration looking at the vulnerability of parasites to climatic change.
