Researcher biography

 

Jasmine is a PhD student with Richard Fuller, Aleks Terauds (AAD), Justine Shaw (UQ/AAD), Iadine Chades (CSIRO) and Hugh Possingham (UQ). Her PhD focuses on conserving biodiversity in the Antarctic under climate change. In particular Jasmine’s project will look at how the distributions of species in ice-free areas will be affected by climate and other threats, such as invasive species and tourism. The next stage will incorporate this information into a prioritisation of protected areas and climate adaptation actions.
