RMIT University

Ascelin works within RMIT University’s Interdisciplinary Conservation Science group in Melbourne, Australia. He undertakes research on a range of conservation problems with a particular focus on decision-making for conservation. Ascelin's current research focuses on developing predictive modelling approaches to assess the impacts of different types of conservation policies such as biodiversity offsetting and incentives for conservation on private land. He also works on the application of conservation planning and spatial prioritisation in complex environments that incorporate uncertainty, and has an interest in impact evaluation.
