My research explores how pollinator-friendly management (at different spatial scales) may affect pollination services and/or species conservation, as a way of finding sustainable farm management practices which simultaneously improve pollinator populations and farmers' agricultural resilience.
I am currently contributing to the Managing Green Space project where I am working with partners in research, industry and the environment to apply bee population models to contemporary conservation and food security issues in Cornwall and the UK. This project is part the South West Partnership for Environmental and Economic Prosperity (SWEEP) which is funded by NERC.
