Matthew Struebig

Dr Matthew Struebig is a tropical ecologist interested in the impacts of environmental change on biodiversity and the implications this has for landscape management and conservation planning. Much of his work is based in the modified habitats of Southeast Asia and is applied to the conservation of tropical mammals. Matt joined DICE in 2010, initially as a Leverhulme Trust Research Fellow.

Dr Struebig’s research group works on various conservation issues in the tropics, including: the biodiversity value of degraded habitats; landscape design; urban ecology and hunting. Their work is mainly funded by NERC, the Leverhulme Trust, the Newton Fund and Darwin Initiative.
