I have a background researching pests and diseases of pine plantations in New Zealand. Following a two-year stint as an ecological consultant, I am now completing a PhD at University of Queensland and CSIRO (Land and Water Flagship). My project involves extending the functionality of existing macroecological modeling approaches to predict the “insurance value” of beta diversity in woody plant communities for maintaining ecosystem function under climate change.
