PhD Candidate in Biogeography + Science Communicator, UNSW

I am in the final stages of a PhD with the UNSW (Biogeography). More specifically I am currently working on the development and optimisation of non-invasive fauna detection techniques.

Other research interests include the philosophy of science, evolutionary biogeography, invasive species ecology, and science communication.
