We are delighted to welcome guest speaker: Professor Kate Jones

Following the AGM there will be the opportunity to listen to a talk by Kate Jones who is Professor of Ecology and Biodiversity at University College London and The Zoological Society of London and heads the Biodiversity Modelling Research Group at the Centre for Biodiversity and Environment Research.

Kate is the editor of several scientific journals, runs a number of citizen science projects (such as iBats and Bat Detective) and holds a number of scientific advisory board positions for national and international conservation charities. She is the winner of the 2008 Philip Leverhulme Award for Outstanding Contributions to Zoology, and also recently appeared on Radio 4’s Life Scientific.
Kate will talk about the role that technology plays in conservation, reviewing some of the latest advances in sensors used to monitor wildlife. Although technological advances have undoubtedly contributed to the overexploitation of natural resources and decline of wild nature, Kate will also argue that technology can help us to better understand the natural world and to further engage people with their environment. Her research is focused on understanding how biodiversity is maintained and conserved globally and how best to monitor biodiversity with new technologies.

Refreshments will be available.
