Biological invasions

My research focuses on assessing how alien species are being moved around the world, the identification of potential invaders before they are introduced, and predicting where future biological invasions could occur and have an impact. While this research has largely focused on South Africa and other developing regions, I have undertaken analyses at a number of spatial scales including regional and global scales. Through my research I aim to inform the allocation of limited resources to prevent the introduction of alien species that are likely to cause harm to ecological or socio-economic systems.
