I am an Arctic ecologist and geographer. My Masters work was on development of predictive habitat models in light of potential oil development and my PhD research (with Dr. Gareth Rees at SPRI) was on potential impacts of climate change on reindeer in the Barents regions. I now work in global conservation at UNEP-WCMC where I am Deputy Head of the Science Programme. Read more
