About Me

IMG_1464_crop    OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA     IMG_2162_crop

I am an Alfred Deakin Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Deakin University within the Centre for Integrative Ecology. I hold a courtesy faculty position within the Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society at Oregon State University, and I am an Affiliate Assistant Professor within the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences at the University of Washington. I continue to collaborate with the Desert Ecology Research Group at The University of Sydney, where I am based.

I have broad research interests in the ecology, conservation and management of mammals. 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 interactions between grey wolves, coyotes and red foxes across North America. I have also completed research on the diet of domestic dogs in remote communities and on the ecology of feral cats and red foxes. I recently completed a global review on the ecological effects of providing resource subsidies to predators.

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