Research overview

My research lies in the interplay between policy, land management decisions and land use change impacts on ecosystem services. Before joining the University of Leeds, I was one the Lead Scientists of the Natural Capital Project in Stanford University, and contributed to the development of InVEST (Integrated Valuation of Ecosystem Services and Trade-offs) GIS toolbox. I also led projects for U.S. EPA (EP10COOO233 - Biofuel Expansion Impacts on Soil Loss in the US Midwest) and U.S. DOD (ESTCP RC-201113 - Enlisting Ecosystem Services: Quantification and Valuation of Ecosystem Services to Inform Base Management). Visit here for current and past projects I was involved in at Leeds.
