About Me

I'm a biologist with a focus on ecology and conservation science. I'm currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation Science at the University of Queensland.

My research focuses on understanding more about the natural world, and how we can do a better job of preventing its demise.

My PhD investigated the impacts of climate change on tropical savanna birds. For my postdoctoral work I used models to identify the important long-term climate change refugia for terrestrial vertebrates and freshwater animals. I also investigate the shorter term refuge use of threatened species.  I am interested in both climate change adaptation (e.g. protecting important refuges and refugia), and mitigation (e.g. maximising carbon sequestration and storage) and the trade-offs between these. 

I have a keen interest in the "coal face" of preventing extinctions: endangered species and the effectiveness of environmental law and policy. I put this into practice sitting on the Recovery Team for the Black-throated Finch, Birdlife Australia's Research and Conservation Committee, and Birdlife Australia's Threatened Species Advisory Committee.

Before my PhD I travelled the world studying bats. I love bird watching, bush walking, cycling and chocolate. And trees. I love trees.
