Rachel Cavanagh, PhD

Senior Associate

I am a senior research scientist at the British Antarctic Survey, with almost twenty years’ experience in scientific research, international programme management, and the provision of technical advice for policy. An ecologist by training, my research is cross-disciplinary linking climate science and ecology to address the challenges in understanding and managing changing marine ecosystems. I am particularly interested in the interactions between humans and marine systems including: the effects of change (climate and fishing) on ecosystems; the relationship between biodiversity, ecosystem function and ecosystem services in the context of change; and improving how science informs decision-making for conservation and management.
