I am an environmental economist who mainly works on the application of economic methods (including behavioural economics) to biodiversity conservation, invasive species, and measures of sustainability. I am also interested in choice modelling and cost-benefit analysis; marine systems; the design of environmental policy (especially Payment for Ecosystem Service schemes); the economics of pollination; and ecological-economic modelling. I am an Associate Editor of Resource and Energy Economics.
