Professor Terence Dawson (BSc Exeter 1990, MPhil Cantab 1994, PhD Soton 1997) has research expertise in biogeography and natural resource management with a specific interest in human-environment interactions, ecosystems services and climate change.
A Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society since 1986, his earlier career included academic positions at the Universities of Oxford (1998-2004), Edinburgh (2004-2007), Southampton (2007-2011) and Dundee (2011-2016).
He has published over 200 manuscripts since 1997, some of which have been highly cited (eight publications listed on the Thomson ‘highly-cited’ category from Essential Science Indicators). In 2016, he was ranked in the top 10% of Scientists globally under the Environment/Ecology category.
From 2000-date, he has successfully managed research grants from the European Union (V and VI Frameworks), Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) (including the Darwin Initiative Programme), Leverhulme Trust, Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), Royal Society, Department for International Development (DfID), English Nature, Scottish Natural Heritage, Andrew Mellon Foundation and ENTRUST, with a total value over £5 Million.
He was the principal investigator on the policy-influential, Modelling Natural Resource Responses to Climate Change (MONARCH) project from 1999-2007 and the NERC QUEST (Quantifying and Understanding the Earth System) Global-scale impacts of climate change (2008-2011). He was also the principal investigator on the European Union ECOCHANGE (Challenges in assessing and forecasting biodiversity and ecosystem changes) and RUBICODE projects, which examined the complex issues surrounding the impacts of environmental and social-economic change on biodiversity and ecosystem services in the past and under future climate scenarios.
