People Professor Jeremy Thomas

Principal Investigator, Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Food


Professor of Ecology

Jeremy’s research focuses on understanding the factors that determine change in species’ abundance, distributions and specializations.

Much of his work involves studying the population, community, functional or evolutionary ecology of insects, and much was inspired by the need to manipulate insect populations in order to solve conservation problems. Successful applications include the re-establishment of the globally endangered Large blue butterfly in the UK.
