About Us

We are an academic research group based in the Department of Biology, University of Oxford. Our work addresses the challenges that humanity faces in halting the decline of global biodiversity.

We work at the interface of social and ecological systems, using a range of methodologies and interdisciplinary approaches to address key issues in current conservation.

Our underlying philosophy is that in order to make progress we need to consider the incentives, pressures and challenges faced by individual decision-makers, and to bring together multidisciplinary teams who are best placed to address these issues.
