    I have been a practising conservation professional for over 25 years, the last seven of which at senior level.  Throughout my career I have initiated and delivered a variety of applied conservation management projects, all of which I have endeavoured to translate into practical tools for conservation practitioners.  My current position requires me to teach/run conservation biology courses to a variety of audiences and I am consistently recognised as an excellent communicator.   I have a wide range of interests and contacts in conservation/biodiversity management, all of which I utilise wherever possible in my lectures and fieldwork, with much of my external research undertaken in collaboration with statutory and non-statutory organisations.
