I am a Sêr Cymru fellow within the NRN-LCEE funded project RESILCOAST that aims at integrating ecosystem resilience into coastal planning for the persistence of natural flood protection and wetland ecosystem services.

I have strong interests in theoretical and experimental ecology, particularly that of a multi-disciplinary nature. My research history prior to joining RESILCOAST concerned 5 main interest areas:

  1. Study of biotic interactions, particularly herbivory, plant-animal and predator-prey interactions.
  2. Landscape ecology, especially to understand the drivers of spatial heterogeneity in ecosystem processes such herbivory, production or reproduction in seagrasses.
  3. Effects of disturbances on plant and animal species.
  4. Ecosystem stability and alternative stable states in macrophyte systems.
  5. Drivers of animal movement and consequences of the interaction landscape-behaviour on ecosystem function.

In RESILCOAST, I am leading the development of a systematic review to assess the vulnerability of salt marshes to extreme events. I am also assessing how ecosystem services, such as carbon storage and grazing, vary in dynamic ecosystems that suffer transitions between vegetated and unvegetated states.
