Researcher biography

I am interested in how species respond to human-caused disturbance and how we can effectively monitor and manage disturbed ecological communities. My current research focuses on temperate woodland birds and will bring together information from existing monitoring programs to explore the cost-effectiveness of management actions that benefit the ecological community. Previously, I studied invasion and pollination biology in South Africa's Cape Floristic Region during my Master's degree, and the movement ecology of Australia's arid bird community during my PhD.
