About Me

IMG_1464_crop    OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA     IMG_2162_crop

I am a Lecturer (Early Career Development Fellow) at The University of Sydney. I hold a courtesy faculty position within the Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society at Oregon State University, and an Affiliate Assistant Professorship within the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences at The University of Washington.

My research addresses how species respond to human-induced changes to the landscape. I am particularly interested in how humans and top predators shape and drive ecosystem processes.

My doctoral research focused on the ecology and behaviour of the dingo in the Tanami Desert of central Australia. As a Fulbright Postdoctoral Scholar I investigated the ecological role of grey wolves and other large carnivores.

I currently co-lead studies assessing (i) how mountain lions and other species are responding to the return of grey wolves in Washington State USA, (ii) the ecological role of carrion in Australia, (iii) human-carnivore conflicts globally, and (iv) how to resolve the global extinction crisis.

In 2018 I established the Global Ecology Lab at The University of Sydney.

I am always keen to collaborate with researchers and students who have similar interests and goals.
