The wonderful people I am working or have worked with.
Miguel Araújo – my current post-doctoral mentor. If you’ve ever read a paper on species range shifts under climate change, historical species distributions, or nature reserves in a changing world, there’s a good chance he’s on it.
Damien Fordham – develops cutting-edge population models for wildlife management and climate change ecological forecasts
NCEAS – In 2011-2012 I was part of a working group at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis in California. The centre exists to bring together diverse researchers to look at an old or emerging question in a new way. Our group aimed to address the effects of climate change on invasive species.
Dov Sax – my former post-doctoral mentor. Dov looks to explain the patterns of species distribution around the world and how climate contributes to these patterns. I think his most exciting work is using information on invasive species to question fundamental principles of ecology.
Chris Thomas – my PhD supervisor. Studies the calamitous effects of climate change and habitat fragmentation on biological systems, but never fails to come up with a useful conservation solution to our problems.
Robert Wilson – designs innovative field experiments to tease apart the effects of climate, biotic interactions and intrinsic population traits on species’ range margins.
