Her interests lie in tackling the complexities of measuring biodiversity change and communicating that in a straightforward way to the public and for policy.

For the past 10 years Louise has primarily been working in partnership with WWF on the development and implementation of the Living Planet Index, a global biodiversity indicator (www.livingplanetindex.org). In that time she has also contributed to biennial Living Planet Reports, a publication with a global reach reporting the state of the natural world, and provided indicators for the Convention on Biological Diversity through the Biodiversity Indicators Partnership.
