Biography:
Dr Singleton is the leader of Irrigated Rice Research Consortium (IRRC) at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI).

His areas of expertise include:
1. Wildlife management, particularly rodent pests of agriculture with specialist expertise in management of rodents in rice agro-ecosystems in Asia (13 years). This research has been strongly aligned with end-users through close involvement of extension staff and farmer groups. He has been instrumental in developing and championing a new management paradigm: “integrated ecologically-based management of rodent pests”. He also has a strong research record in biological control of rodents. Other areas of expertise include population ecology, behavioural ecology and host-disease interactions of small mammals.

2. Management and delivery of integrated technologies, for increasing the productivity and environmental sustainability of rice cropping in intensive lowland systems.

3. Research and extension networks in developing countries in Asia.
