Researcher biography

Caitlin completed both a Bachelor of Geographical Science (2019) and a Master of Conservation Science (2021) here at the University of Queensland.  Through her undergraduate studies, she found her passion in understanding the effects of climate change on biodiversity, and wanted to focus her Masters on the application of this knowledge to aid in the conservation of Australia's precious and threatened species. Caitlin's research project, conducted under the supervision of Dr April Reside and Dr Andrew Rogers, focused on developing a framework for governments that both assessed climate change threats to a species and identified and assessed management actions to address these threats.
