Summary

I have over 20 years of research and development experience working in the field of biodiversity and nature conservation. I obtained my MSc from St. Petersburg Forest University studying the effects of environmental change on wood properties at the Department of Forest Conservation. I stayed on to work on various projects including the EU-INTAS funded mission to create an International Centre for Forestry and Forest Industries in Russia. I then joined the European Forest Institute to carry out an inventory of forestry research capacities in Europe. In 2000, I went to Beijing, China to undertake a global assessment of bamboo and rattan resources at INBAR. For one year, 2003-2004 I was with Plantlife International facilitating Planta Europa network. I obtained my PhD from the University of Cambridge working at the Department of Plant sciences on biogeography, ecology and evolution of tree ferns. Since 2009, I have been with the Department of Life Sciences of The Natural History Museum, London.
