Research Interests

I am most interested in analysing key components of urbanisation that drive changes in small mammal community ecology. Being urban green areas small islands of biodiversity, I am interested in finding what variables most contribute to variation in species composition, abundance and other ecological parameters. Ultimatly, I want to understand how can we improve such areas to be more attarctive to both humans and animals.
