About the research

Ecological niche models are ecologists' multi-tools for understanding and predicting the effects of global climate change and habitat modification on biodiversity. However, mismatch between the spatial resolution of environmental layers used to build these models – with each pixel representing several km or more – and the relatively small size of the microclimates with which organisms actually interact is a major barrier to ecological realism and predictive confidence.


My research combines emerging methods in remote sensing with mechanistic modelling to map the above and below-ground microclimate landscape at sub-metre spatial resolutions and quantify the uncertainty in lower-resolution models.
