Biography

My interests include the development and testing of concepts in ecology with special reference to coastal systems. My present focus includes the impacts of climate variability and climate change as drivers of population abundance and the role of biotic interactions; drivers of biogeographic patterns and future predictions of species’ distributions; and development of tools to assess vulnerability of species, habitats and regions to climate change. These are achieved through the development of mechanistic and statistical population models that incorporate information from observations at a range of spatial scales and explore the role of both direct (e.g, physiological responses) and indirect (e.g., biotic interactions) mechanisms driving population response to climate change.
