Assessing the impacts of rewilding at the Knepp Estate, UK, using ensemble ecosystem and agent-based models


Member: CoHESyS lab; IUCN Commission on Ecosystem Management


Emily's research focusses on how we can provide a firm theoretical basis for recovering the health of degraded ecosystems. In collaboration with the Knepp Estate, she is currently developing quantitative models to assess the ecosystem-wide impacts of rewilding.

Emily holds a BA in Biology and Opera Performance from Vanderbilt University and an MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation, and Management from the University of Oxford. She previously worked on the Conservation Team at the Born Free Foundation, where she led projects to assess the threats to a population of elephants at the Babile Elephant Sanctuary, Ethiopia. Before this, she led a research site to study chimpanzee behaviour and tool-use at Monts de Cristal National Park, Gabon.
