Dr. Zoe Davies is a lecturer in biodiversity conservation at the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology (DICE), University of Kent, UK. She is an applied ecologist who uses empirical data to address questions of importance to environmental management and policy. Her research interests relating to urbanisation are diverse, but include examining how:
» patterns of urbanisation and greenspace infrastructure respond to policy recommendations;
» to manage urban areas in order to maintain/enhance biodiversity and ecosystem service provision;
» interactions with wildlife and the natural environment can benefit human health and wellbeing.
Some of her most recent work focuses on quantifying, mapping and managing biological carbon stores (within soil and vegetation) in cities. Dr. Davies received a BSc(Hons) from Royal Holloway, University of London, and was awarded her PhD from the University of Leeds in 2004.
