Professor in Conservation Science

I am a conservation scientist interested in conservation impact evaluation (using quasi-experimental approaches, experimental approaches and participatory impact evaluation) and the impacts of conservation interventions (including agri-environment schemes, Payments for Ecosystem Services, community forest management, protected areas and biodiversity offsets). I have a particular focus on the social dimensions of conservation and I greatly enjoy working with people, methods and approaches from across disciplinary divides.

I have a strong interest in Madagascar where I have worked, with many Malagasy colleagues, for 20 years on issues around conservation and development.

I am the director of the Sêr Cymru Low Carbon Energy and Environment Research Network Wales.

I am chair of the College of Engineering and Environmental Science Research Ethics Committee at Bangor University.

I have recently been appointed as the Prince Bernhard Chair in International Nature Conservation at Utrecht University. The Prince Bernhard Chair is appointd for a term of five years. The purpose of the Chair is to serve international nature conservation through strengthening the link between conservation science and practice, while opening new avenues for multidisciplinary approaches.
