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 15DC 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. The key goal of my research is to achieve better understanding of trends and patterns of global biodiversity and better predictive capacity, by studying the imprint of changing climate on biodiversity. My unique contribution to biodiversity research is achieved through analysing and utilizing invaluable biological material and data accumulated in natural history collections, combined with existing knowledge on biogeography and ecological data.
