Head of Science
UN Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre
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. After working at Norut (remote sensing) and the Norwegian Polar Institute (Station Leader in Svalbard), I now work in global conservation at UNEP-WCMC where I am Deputy Head of the Science Programme.
