Dave Hole, Ph.D.

Vice President, Global Solutions, Moore Center for Science

​Dr. Dave Hole’s interests focus on understanding the role that ecosystems, and the biodiversity that underpins them, play in supporting pathways to sustainable global development.

Dave Hole is a Senior Director leading the Global Synthesis Team within Conservation International’s Betty and Gordon Moore Center for Science. His team focuses on conducting novel global analyses that identify and evaluate the contribution of natural capital (ecosystems and the biodiversity that underpins them) to human wellbeing, across marine, freshwater and terrestrial realms. Much of his own research has focused on climate change impacts on species and ecosystems, and the role of protected areas in supporting species persistence in an uncertain, dynamic future. More recently he has begun exploring the contexts in which ecosystems and the services they provide can help buffer people from the negative impacts of climate change.

A native of the UK, Dave joined Conservation International in 2008 after completing a PhD at the University of Oxford (UK) and post-doctoral work at both Oxford and Durham Universities. He has authored numerous peer-review publications and book chapters on subjects ranging from lipid metabolism, to house sparrow genetics, to climate change and its potential impacts on biodiversity and people.
