BSc Hons in Zoology and Environmental Biology
PhD in Reintroduction Biology
I am a wildlife ecologist and conservation biologist who is passionate about conserving our desert ecosystems. My research interests include rewilding, mammal behaviour, threatened species management and predator/prey interactions. I aim to improve the plight of threatened species through conducting applied research and applying the learnings to conservation management. I study a range of species including bilbies, quolls, bandicoots, bettongs, numbats, malleefowl, woma pythons, phascogales and stick-nest rats. My research focuses on large scale field experiments designed to improve adaptive management and translocation success. I have a special interest in creating conservation partnerships that combine research with on ground outcomes (Arid Recovery, Tetepare Island, Wild Deserts and Middleback Alliance). I supervise students who wish to conduct field experiments in desert areas that will directly contribute to improved conservation outcomes.
