Adjunct Research Fellow, Research Institute for Environment and Livelihoods, Charles Darwin University

My research interest is in wildlife ecology. Within this discipline, my interests are broad with particular emphasis on the ecology and conservation biology of birds, and on plant ecology. Recent and current projects include:

- an assessment of the conservation status of the eucalypts of northern Australia
- author and editor of a book about Australian birds and climate change
- phenology and effect of irrigation on a shrub that flowers while leafless during the tropical dry season
- involvement in manuscripts on brain size in Australian birds, ant assemblages in rainforest revegetation, the impact of disturbance on shorebirds, and changing perceptions of threat to Australian birds
