Postdoctoral fellow, Decision Science, The University of Queensland

I am committed to conservation science that can inform decision making at the science-policy-management interface. I am interested in evaluating the effectiveness of conservation actions. In particular, the monitoring and evaluation of biological outcomes in response to conservation actions, specifically protected areas. My research interests include: conservation policy, optimal decision making, using available data to make decisions, protected area management, bayesian modelling, using citizen science programs to leverage knowledge, structured decision making, monitoring and evaluation, management effectiveness, and how to deliver sufficient and efficient conservation action.
