I’m a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation Science and the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Queensland in Brisbane.
I apply methods from decision science to analyse and solve conservation management problems. I use mathematics, modelling, statistical analysis, and ecological theory to find the best ways to manage and conserve natural systems.
My areas of expertise are:
– Eradication of invasive species
– Monitoring and value of information
– Adaptive management
– Decision-making for translocation and ex situ management
I’m currently running a project for the National Environmental Science Program Threatened Species Recovery Hub creating and applying a decision tool for assessing whether ex situ management will benefit a threatened species.
I’m also a demonstrator and guest lecturer for a masters-level course in Environmental Problem Solving.
