Biography

My research focusses on identifying scientifically-based solutions to human-wildlife conflicts. In my early career, I worked in Mexico and the USA and on a diverse range of both agricultural and natural resource issues and species including birds, pocket gophers, squirrels, mongooses, and rats. I returned to Australia in 2004 to manage the Kangaroo Island Koala Management Program.

When I moved to Deakin University in 2007, I maintained my interest in koalas, undertaking research on their southern distribution, population dynamics, and behaviour. I also developed a keen interest in the ecology of alpine regions.

I have a strong interest in spatial ecology, especially related to animal home range and movements.

Please contact me if you are interested in undertaking a PhD. I have a number of opportunities and would love to discuss these with you.
