I pursue research in areas of ecology including plant- & plant community ecology, flora-fauna interactions to provide innovative research on sustainable semi-natural herbaceous vegetation for urban and sub-urban environments. I have a special interest in native species, their ecology, habitat specialisation and associated  biodiversity. Restoration, establishment techniques and maintenance of grassland vegetation types is the core of my research.
