Matthew R. Evans

Dean of Science and Professor of Ecology
at The University of Hong Kong

Faculty of Science

One of the larger faculties at The University of Hong Kong. Home of the fundamental sciences: biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences, mathematics and statistics and actuarial sciences. With about 170 faculty and 3000 students from around the world.

Professor of Ecology

I have wide research interests in ecology, behaviour and conservation. My main interest at present is how we will predict the effects of environmental change on the natural world. What makes climate change one of the 21st century‚Äôs priority issues is its impact, rather than any direct change in climate. There is an urgent need to predict the nature and scale of these impacts on the biological world and currently we do not have the tools and approaches to undertake this task. My earlier work was much more behavioural and I continue to conduct work in the field of behavioural ecology, most notably on swallows. My research has taken me all around the world and I have run projects in many countries, having started with my PhD work in Kenya.
