Julian has a background in Ecology and Natural Resource Management. His interests are in the design, planning and decision-making processes associated with protected areas (PA), both terrestrial and marine. One of the major outputs from his PhD research was the design of a PA for critically endangered hawksbill sea turtles nesting in Barbados. Another interest is the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS; primarily ArcGIS) as a tool for spatial and temporal analysis.
