Research Interests

I am part of the terrestrial ecology team in the Environmental Research Institute. I am interested in applied research and science communication. My speciality is native epiphytes (perching plants) but I work across a wide range of projects. My two key science communication projects are the New Zealand Tree Project and the New Zealand Epiphyte Network.
