Prof Felix Eigenbrod is a Professor of Applied Spatial Ecology, in Geography and Environmental Science at the University of Southampton.

A landscape ecologist by training, I am broadly interested in quantifying the often complex interactions between biodiversity, society and ecosystem services, and at identifying the spatial and temporal scales at which tradeoffs and interactions occur. In my research I use GIS and different modelling techniques to develop novel methodologies for linking existing environmental, social and biological datasets to fully understand the processes underlying the wide range of ecosystem services used by humans, and how human impacts affect global distributions of species. My work is highly interdisciplinary, and I frequently collaborate with specialists in other fields, ranging from biophysical modellers (e.g. hydrologists and dynamic vegetation modellers) to economists and human geographers.
