Ph. D. - Environmental Energy and Species Diversity in Flowering Plants (Ecology and Evolution) - Imperial College of Science (Royaume-Uni) - 2004
Maîtrise - Conservation Biology - University of Cape Town (Afrique du sud) - 1997
Baccalauréat - Zoology - U. of Nottingham (Royaume-Uni) - 1995

Phylogenetics & Biodiversity. Development and application of phylogenetic methods in ecology and conservation biology. Phylogenetics offers a powerful means to explore evolutionary mechanisms shaping ecological patterns and the distribution of species richness. A better understanding of the processes shaping biodiversity patterns will be critical if we wish to reduce current rates of biodiversity loss.
