Jeffrey Hanson is a postdoctoral scientist at CIBIO-InBIO, The University of Porto. His research concerns the challenges involved in developing cost-effective plans to conserve biodiversity. With an emphasis on planning for new protected areas, he is interested in employing novel datasets to make better conservation decisions, exploring new optimisation algorithms to find better solutions, and identifying cost-effective surrogate data that can inform conservation decisions when high quality expensive data are not available. Jeffrey completed his PhD thesis at the University of Queensland, where he developed new methods to operationalize evolutionary processes, such as adaptation and gene flow, so that they can be used to inform conservation decision making. Now, Jeffrey is applying these methods to amphibian species in the Iberian Peninsula so that important places for their long-term persistence are not overlooked.
