Hannah Wauchope

Research Fellow
Centre for Ecology and Conservation, University of Exeter

I am currently an 1851 Research Fellow at the Centre for Ecology and Conservation, University of Exeter. Working alongside Dr Regan Early, I am investigating past species responses to climatic change to better predict future responses. My previous research has included studies of protected area effectiveness at a global scale, conservation of polar regions, and methods to better work with count data. I did my PhD at the University of Cambridge with Professor Bill Sutherland and Dr Tatsuya Amano, and my undergrad and Honours at The University of Queensland, with Professor Rich Fuller and Dr Justine Shaw.

Most of my work is modelling-based, and I am experienced with species distribution models, population models, mixed effects models and Bayesian hierarchical models. I am passionate about ensuring that my work extends beyond academia and have collaborated with the Australian Antarctic Division, The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), WWF via The Living Planet Index, Wetlands International and The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
