Menna Elizabeth Jones

Associate professor, University of Tasmania

My research area is in wildlife ecology and conservation, with a particular focus on carnivores (Tasmanian devils and quolls) and using ecological approaches to managing the impacts of invasive species (feral cats).

Since gaining my PhD in this area in 1996, I have conducted postdoctoral research at Tel Aviv University (Israel), University of Queensland, and the Australian National University on an ARC Postdoctoral Fellowship. I have been an ARC Future Fellow and am currently an academic and Senior Research Fellow at the University of Tasmania from 2011 to 2016.
