Biography summary

I am an Associate Professor in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation at Deakin University. Between 2008 and 2010 I was an ARC Research Associate at James Cook University, and prior to this a post-doctoral fellow at the Museum of Victoria. I completed my PhD at James Cook University (2007) on the ecology and conservation of the antilopine wallaroo.

 

My research is cross-disciplinary and focuses on two broad and inter-connected themes:


1. Analysis of the factors that limit the distribution and abundance of species and those that are responsible for biogeographic patterns of species diversity;


2. The ecology and conservation of Australia’s native mammals. In answering these questions I span a diverse range of fields of study; including behavioural-, community- and evolutionary-ecology, conservation biology, landscape ecology and wildlife management. My aim is to better understand species’ niches and their ecologies, and in turn, use this information to inform more effective conservation and management of biodiversity.
