Researcher biography

Angela is a PhD student in the Applied Marine Biogeography Lab, supervised by Associate Professor Daniel Dunn and Dr. Lily Bentley. Her research focuses on comprehensive network modelling for migratory marine species to identify important nodes for connectivity. Angela aims to integrate multiple sampling methods to produce a systematically consistent, cross-taxa approach to support conservation planning.  

Prior to joining the University of Queensland, she worked as a research assistant studying climate impacts on coral reefs in the Indo-Pacific Oceans using geospatial modelling tools at the University of British Columbia. She then completed her Master's degree at the University of Oxford, where her thesis focused on connectivity modelling for nature recovery. Since then, she has worked at BirdLife International on data analyses and management for the Key Biodiversity Areas programme.
