I am a Research Fellow in the Quantitative and Applied Ecology Group. My research focuses on understanding how species traits and human activities influence the processes of invasion and extinction in amphibians and reptiles. My current research revolves around three main themes: (i) biases in amphibian and reptile invasions, (ii) optimal management of invasive amphibians, and (iii) the role of species distribution models (SDMs) in conservation decision-making.
