Researchers

Veski Emily Nicholson, senior lecturer. Emily is interesting in solving conservation problems. Her  research interests include forecasting change in biodiversity through scenario modelling, biodiversity indicators, conservation planning, and global biodiversity policy, including the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems.
Lucie Lucie Bland, postdoctoral research fellow. Lucie develops mechanistic models of ecosystem collapse to inform the criteria for the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems. Her interests include global conservation policy, macroecology and computational statistics.
paul-carnell Paul Carnell, postdoctoral research fellow. Paul’s research focuses on environmental science at the interface of research and management of ecosystems, in particular marine and coastal ecosystem services including blue carbon.
Clare Duncan, postdoctoral research fellow
Biao Huang, postdoctoral research fellow
Current students
Chris Hallam, The University of Melbourne: conservation planning, ecological modelling Chris Hallam, PhD student, The University of Melbourne, co-supervised with Brendan Wintle. Chris’s research focus on the tradeoffs between development, biodiversity and human well-being and how to model and test different policy options at different spatial scales to make better decisions for conservation and development.
holger Holger Janes, PhD student, Deakin University, co-supervised with Peter Macreadie and Dan Ierodiaconou. Holger is interested in marine and coastal ecosystem services.
Coorong lester conversation Matt Linn, PhD student, Deakin University, co-supervised with Rebecca Lester and Lucie Bland. Matt is interested in understanding the impacts of scale in applications of the IUCN Red list of Ecosystems.
jessica-rowland Jess Rowland, PhD student, Deakin University, co-supervised with Lucie Bland and Rebecca Lester. Jess’s PhD research focusses on how to assess change in ecosystem function, with a focus on applying state-and-transition models in conjunction with the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems.
gerry-ryan Gerry Ryan, PhD student, The University of Melbourne, co-supervised with Mick McCarthy. Gerry is studying the elements underlying achieving successful conservation impacts, and how we can, do, and should evaluate them.
Simone Stevenson, PhD student, Deakin University. Simone’s research focusses on evaluating biodiversity indicators.
