I am interested in monitoring how invertebrate biodiversity responds to human-driven perturbations and the identification of effective mitigation and recovery strategies to minimise associated adverse impacts. Previous work has examined the invertebrate response to perturbations such as invasive species, novel pathogens via globalisation, and housing development through the lens of Biodiversity Net Gain.

My LCNR work involves examining how regenerative agriculture interventions, such as mob grazing, impact invertebrates relative to commercial grazing. With this has come important data with respect to biodiversity across the University’s Green Estate.
