I am currently working as the Ecologist for Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary. In this role I mainly focus on the research and restoration of critically endangered box-gum grassy woodlands. A key element to this restoration is the reintroduction of species lost from this ecosystem due to habitat clearing and introduced pest species. Species we are reintroducing include the Eastern Bettong, New Holland Mouse and Bush Stone-curlew.
I have a PhD from the Australian National University that focused on the effective management of introduced species. This research was undertaken at the Fenner School of Environment and Society and was supervised by David Lindenmayer, Chris Tidemann and Jeff Wood. I used the common myna (Acridotheres tristis) as a case study to investigate invasion sequence, species impact (type and severity) and population dynamics of culled species. Check out my publications here.
In my spare time I enjoy bushwalking and packrafting.
I'm looking to move to Melbourne so let me know if you are involved in any exciting projects down there.
