Researcher biography

I am the Data Analyst for the Threatened Species Index (TSX) at the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN). The TSX integrates long-term monitoring data for Australia’s threatened species. In my role, I work with data custodians from across the country to process, integrate and analyse their monitoring data, providing up-to-date estimates of change in the abundance of Australia’s threatened species.

Coupled with my TSX role, I continue to pursue my interests in the field of data science, focussing on the important role it plays in biodiversity conservation. I am particularly passionate about helping streamline the ways in which we collect, analyse, publish, and access data, critical to improving scientific discovery, communication, and collaboration globally.

I hold a degree in Advanced Science (Ecology) with First Class Honours from The University of Queensland and my research experience covers aspects of plant community and invasion ecology, as well as conservation biology.
