I grew up in South Africa and completed my undergraduate degree in ecology and economics at the University of Cape Town. My core research interest is understanding biodiversity change. My PhD research at the University of Oxford used ecology and evolutionary biology to explain biodiversity patterns in South American birds. I recognise that environmental problems are also social problems, and enjoy working in interdisciplinary teams. My focus at SESYNC is to understand how changes in human systems are connected to changes in ecological systems.
