Researcher biography

Rob Clemens is a PhD candidate researching the impacts of pulses in resource availability on migratory species, using migratory shorebirds that use Australia’s ephemeral wetlands as a case study. Research is focused on characterising the dynamics of pulses in migratory shorebird habitat suitability across the Australian continent, and then looking to identify how those pulse dynamics impact both migratory shorebird populations and when and where we might manage water for migratory shorebirds in Australia.
