Welcome to my blog,

I am an Ecologist completing a PhD at Massey University (NZ).

A key component of a functioning democracy and efficient economy is informed decision making. In the age of “alternative facts” and click-bait media, it is vital that objective, evidence based information is shared. Through this blog I will attempt to share my evidence based, objective opinion on topics of interest.

My formal training is in biological and environmental sciences, predominantly aquatic ecology, food webs and network analysis; however, I also have interests in nutrition, politics, economics and anything else I feel interested in at the time.

I welcome constructive, evidence-based criticism.

I hope you enjoy the discussion.
