Researcher biography

I endeavour to build an understanding of the ecological issues required to manage and conserve the natural environment of the north-eastern quarter of the Australian continent. The big natural playground of Queensland represents ecosystems from tropical rainforest to arid shrublands so I suspect I have the best job in the world! At present, I am mostly working on threatened plant species, but retain an active interest in the ecology and hydrogeology of springs, drought-induced tree dieback and habitat restoration, among other things. I have far more ideas than time to fulfil them, and I welcome collaborators and committed post-graduate students who wish to increase our understanding of the natural environment
