I am an ecologist with broad experience of diverse taxa from disparate systems in temperate and tropical latitudes. I have extensive experience of the design and application of ecological experiments in addition to highly-developed skills for analysis and interpretation of data. My research addresses major topical issues, particularly about how human activities and developments modify the environment and affect species and habitats. This includes the ecological effects of artificial structures. Throughout my work, I strive to increase my knowledge and understanding of ecology, to apply this knowledge in a useful way and to share this improvement with others.
