Research Interests

Andrew's research focuses on the costs and benefits of conservation, how best to reconcile conservation and farming, the reasons why nature is being lost, and examining what works in conservation. I tackle these issues through fieldwork, analyses of large databases, and modeling, and by working wherever possible with colleagues in other disciplines and with conservation practitioners. I co-founded the Cambridge Conservation Forum; am closely involved in the Cambridge Conservation Initiative; and with Rhys GreenRosie Trevelyan and Shireen Green run the annual Student Conference on Conservation Science.
