I am a terrestrial wildlife ecologist with over 30 years’ research, extension, and teaching experience in Australia, Mexico and the USA. My research is applied and aims to find practical solutions to wildlife management issues, including the conservation of threatened species, and the management of overabundant native species and introduced pests.
I use my skills in spatial ecology to understand species’ distributions and movements in response to landscape change.
Current projects include:
- Koalas – population ecology, response to disturbance or management, spatial ecology
- Yellow-bellied Gliders – the influence of fire and logging on persistence of populations
- Broad-toothed rats – factors influencing their persistence at sites, spatial ecology
- Passive Acoustic Monitoring – use of autonomous recording devices has revolutionalised monitoring of otherwise difficult-to-survey vocalising wildlife species
