Research Interests:

  • Ecology and physiology of free-living Protozoa
  • Dimensions and dynamics of biodiversity at the microbial level
  • Rationalising biological and habitat complexity
  • Characterising the dimensions of biodiversity across spatial scales and in different biogeographical regions

Revealing new and previously unexplored ‘patterns of nature’, and their ecological significance

Exploiting simple techniques of data handling to yield self-similar and other natural patterns that can be used for interpolation – e.g. estimating species richness at different spatial scales - with implications for conservation practices.
