Jasper Slingsby

Research Associate

Jasper was formerly SAEON staff, but moved to the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Cape Town in 2021 and continues as a SAEON Research Associate. His research is focused on global change in South African ecosystems and revolves around field studies and spatial data analyses with the goal of informing policy and management. Most of his projects focus on fire, water, land cover (including invasive species) and climate change, but have increasingly included people in the mix as he’s come to accept that sustainable management of ecosystems has little to do with ecology.
