Rebecca A. Senior

Postdoctoral Research Associate

I am a conservation biologist interested in exploring ecological patterns across scales to inform pragmatic and adaptable conservation practices. I have a particular interest in using advances in technology and open data to tackle difficult questions, and am an avid R user.

Currently I am working with Prof. David Wilcove to assess the effectiveness of different conservation strategies for recovering threatened species. Before arriving in Princeton I completed my PhD at the University of Sheffield (UK), where I studied how loss and degradation of tropical forest impacts species’ ability to cope with global climate change. Prior to that I worked at UNEP-WCMC (UK), mainly on the PREDICTS project, and I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Cambridge (UK).
