My research is interdisciplinary, using geoinformatics to examine environmental questions and problems through the combination of theories and methods from geography and ecology. Primary applications have included modelling species’ distributions and connectivity across landscapes for applications in conservation ecology, epidemiology, and invasion ecology. While my research is generally driven by environmental questions and problems, where necessary my research also includes the development of new methods, data sets, and algorithms. Therefore, I also have technical interests in computer programming and the use and development of open-source and cross-platform scientific software, and I develop and publish my own software when I require it to support my research.

I agree that landscape genetics could benefit from greater input from geoscientists, and that this would be best achieved through the provision of open software. However, I woul...
