Lachlan McBurney

Senior Research officer, Fenner School of Environment & Society, Australian National University

I developed a love of ecology whilst growing up and owner building a mudbrick house with family in the heart of the box ironbark forests of Central Victoria. I studied a Bachelor of Conservation Ecology (Hons) at Deakin University, where I won an Earthwatch Institute Research Fellowship to study with Professor David Lindenmayer and his team at Jervis Bay during my final year.

I have since been working with the Fenner School for 10 years, managing all the Victorian Long Term Monitoring Programs and their various trials, experiments and studies.

I also assist other research officers in the team in the N.S.W studies in Jervis Bay, South West Slopes, the Murray C.M.A Biodiversity Baseline Monitoring Program and the Stewardship program in Northern NSW.
