Tatsuya Amano is a Postdoctoral Research Associate, working at the Department of Zoology. After receiving his BSc (2001), MSc (2003) and PhD (2006) at the University of Tokyo, he worked as a researcher at the National Institute for Agro-Environmental Sciences in Japan. In 2011 he joined the Conservation Science Group in Zoology as a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellow, before starting his current position in 2013.
He has a wide range of research interests in Ecology and Biodiversity Conservation. His current projects focus on understanding spatial and temporal changes in the status of biodiversity at national and global scales. Examples include the global distribution of species extinction risk and the impact of climate change and agriculture on biodiversity. He is particularly interested in approaches in macroecology, such as applying mechanistic and statistical models to large-scale long-term biodiversity data.
