My research aims to achieve practical conservation impacts in tropical environments. I lead long-term research in sentinel landscapes in Indonesia and Central Africa. These are landscapes with high biodiversity values and levels of threat where people live in poverty. We work with local universities, NGOs and communities to find development pathways that improve local livelihoods whilst maintaining biodiversity. We adopt a landscape approach and aim to promote vibrant economies co-existing with biodiverse natural habitats. Our research aims to influence local, national and global policies on forest conservation.
