I have broad interests in ecological and environmental process based modelling. These have focused on host-parasite interactions, population ecology and wildlife biology. I am particularly interested in the disease ecology and evolution in spatial landscapes, understanding how fragmented habitats may cause changes in the ecology of certain wildlife diseases. I am also interested in how land use changes and climate change affect a range of factors including greenhouse gas emissions and ecosystem services of different habitats.
I am currently using a process based model to predict greenhouse gas emissions from soils under biofuel crops. We use process based soil models (e.g ECOSSE) with meteorological data influenced by the different climte projections outlined in the UKCIP.
