Researcher biography

I have a background in spatial ecology and landscape-scale conservation ranging from reptile movement patterns and habitat selection to private land management in the USA. I studied my PhD under Eve McDonald-Madden, James Watson, and Matthew Holden at The University of Queensland, working on projects investigating large-scale human-wildlife coexistence questions that incorporate our knowledge of ecosystem services and exposure of species to human pressure, with an emphasis on the world’s carnivores. I also have experience teaching the university’s first Environmental Problem Solving course, which uses structured decision making frameworks to tackle large environmental challenges.
