Prue is a marine conservation scientist who is passionate about improving the use of science in decision-making. Prue is currently based at the University of Oxford, where she works with multinational businesses, government agencies and NGOs bringing lessons from conservation science to help mainstream biodiversity in the private sector. Her work focuses on corporate biodiversity accountability in particular, helping businesses develop systems to measure, evaluate and report on their biodiversity performance. Prior to this Prue has worked in government, academic and private organisations in Australia and the United Kingdom. Her career began with a strong ecological focus, investigating the dynamics of rocky intertidal reef communities in Australia. Since then her research has evolved, and she now works as a conservation scientist facilitating the improved use of scientific approaches in biodiversity and ocean conservation.
