Project Team Member
The University of Melbourne

Pia Lentini is an applied ecologist and part of the Quantitative and Applied Ecology Group at the University of Melbourne. She focuses on conservation in highly modified human-dominated landscapes, and is looking into the issues of human-wildlife conflict, urbanisation and threatened species, biodiversity offsetting and land-use change.

Pia uses quantitative tools and modelling approaches such as population viability analysis, spatial conservation prioritisation, and species distribution modelling to understand how the management decisions we make today will impact on wildlife populations into the future.
