I am a Senior Lecturer at the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (Western Sydney University), where I lead the “Lab of Animal Ecology”. I am also President of the Australasian Bat Society, a nonprofit organisation whose aim is to promote the conservation and study of bats in Australasia.
My research covers a range of subjects in whole organism biology, but focuses on evolutionary ecology, which is concerned with the ways organisms respond adaptively to changes in their social, ecological, and physical environment.
In addition, I have strong, parallel interests in conservation and climate change biology, and particularly in the areas of endangered species biology, human-wildlife conflict, impacts of extreme events, and conservation planning.
Much of my work is on bats and birds but is not limited to these groups.
