Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Macquarie University, Macquarie University

I'm broadly interested in terrestrial invasion ecology and conservation.

I completed my PhD on the naiveté of native mammals towards alien predators in 2012. I'm interested in the short, medium and longer-term processes through which introduced species interact with local flora and fauna in their new environments.

I am currently a Macquarie University Research Fellow working on novel species interactions between native and exotic plants and herbivores.
