ARC Future Fellow and Associate Professor of Environmental Management, The University of Queensland

I am a landscape and conservation ecologist, and my research group works on the challenge of biodiversity conservation in human-dominated landscapes. My research has focussed mainly on fauna, particularly birds and other vertebrates, and conservation policy. I work with a broad network of collaborators including those from government and non-government organisations to help achieve effective uptake of research outcomes into policy and environmental management approaches. I have a particular interest in biodiversity offsets and understanding the mechanisms that drive species loss from fragmented or degraded landscapes.
