Specialties: Setting up and guiding new GIS programs, Conservation applications of GEO-SPATIAL analysis.

Summary

-
Its a tough question, how do you quantify the benefit of nature to people so that we can support conserving it?
I develop spatially based solutions for the wide range of conservation challenges when balancing people and nature.

Solutions such as:
• spatial databases for comparing management options and outcomes • suitability analyses • site prioritization • models of habitats or key ecosystem processes • scenarios that illustrate the results of different management scenarios over time.
