April Reside

I'm a biologist with a focus on ecology and conservation science, and lecturer in climate change and environmental management. 

My research focuses on understanding more about the natural world, and how we can protect it into the future.

I am fortunate to be working with amazing scientists, natural resource managers and non-government organisations in Australia and across the globe.

At the University of Queensland I work under the banner of all of these: 

Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation Science

National Environmental Science Programme Threatened Species Recovery Hub

Green Fire Science

In my previous postdoctoral roles and PhD I was at James Cook University, working with:

Centre for Tropical Biodiversity and Climate Change

Centre for Tropical Environmental & Sustainability Science

CSIRO's Climate Change Adaptation Flagship

Supervising students is one of the best parts of the job! I have been lucky to supervise some really great students who have done interesting projects, and have mentored many others.
