Research Interests

I am interested by the diversity of natural ecosystems and understanding the processes that maintain biodiversity.
I aim for our research to be used to inform management of ecosystems for both biodiversity and ecosystem services such as carbon storage.
My predominant area of research is Malaysian Borneo where we study the growth and survival of Dipterocarpaceae seedlings and trees with a view to improved management of degraded forest systems.
