Professor for Conservation Biology in Cambridge, Bill has wide interests in conservation biology. He is interested predicting the impacts of environmental change, especially on bird populations. 

Some of this work combines field data and models while other work is purely based on field work. While much of his work has been in the UK, he has been involved in many projects elsewhere in the world.

Another major theme Bill is interested in is using evidence-based conservation to collate experience of the effectiveness of interventions (via the website www.conservationevidence.com) and then use this evidence to advise practice. He hopes that this will eventually revolutionize global conservation practice.
