My research interests are focused on developing and applying decision-theoretic approaches in conservation and natural resource management that explicitly consider feedbacks between system components, and trade-offs between strategies. I am particularly interested in the application of tools and findings from multiple disciplines to conservation and in developing novel techniques to achieve a better understanding of the dynamics of social-ecological systems (SESs). In my doctoral research I investigate the role and implications of different types of uncertainty for the management of SESs, using the conservation of harvested ungulate species in the Serengeti, Tanzania, as a case study. Within an integrated social-ecological framework, I adapted a tool developed in fisheries science to test ...

Lochran proposes to use a long term population dataset for roe deer in Europe (available through Prof. JM Gaillard at CNRS) to determine the impacts of selective harvest on populations using two model frameworks, one traditional matrix and the other an IPM. He will be collaborating with UQ Researchers including Dr. Jonathan Rhodes and Dr. Kerrie Wilson regarding this research with the intended output of at least one collaborative paper for the Centre of Excellence for Environmental Science (CEED).

Josephine is developing spatially-explicit models simulating wildlife movement in the Makgadikgadi Pans, and developing recommendations for the fence rebuilding project in order to help ensure sustainable use of these ecosystems in which people and wildlife must coexist. Josephine plans to work with Prof. Hugh Possingham while at UQ and further Dr. Michael Bode at UoM in addition.

Lucie's research programme focuses on the effects of data uncertainty and availability on conservation decision-making, as well as the macroecology of invertebrates. Through the use of efficient modelling techniques, Lucie aims to address the effects of data gaps on the understanding of global patterns of threat and provide recommendations for conservation resource allocation.

I am a PhD student at the University of Sheffield, UK, with a broad range of research interests, all with the general theme of extinction. Whilst my PhD thesis has focused on understanding the extinction of populations, and how climatic change might alter the timing of such events, I am also currently working on projects in a variety of other fields including: community assembly dynamics, biodiversity patterns, predicting future extinction events, social interest in conservation issues, parasites, and synthesizing theory and empirical studies. I have been privileged enough to work with people from a diverse set of backgrounds, from theoretical ecologists to conservation biologists, with current collaborators in nine institutes in four countries. I am currently based at the University of Sh ...
