PhD candidate, Monash University

Arman is a PhD candidate at Monash University (finishing September 2023). His fields of expertise and interest are invasion science, global change biology, applied ecology, biodiversity informatics, and ecological statistics. He is fixated on developing biosecurity decision support tools that can defensibly forecast alien invaders and invasions: what alien species will arrive? when, where, how, and how often will they arrive? will they become invasive? and what impact will they cause? "Lateral thinking with withered technology" (Gunpei Yokoi), Arman creatively and innovatively approaches his research problems by employing statistical and technological advancements in other scientific disciplines.

On his off times, Arman enjoys science communication, watching history, biography, queer, and societal-issues films, and creating characters and homebrewing campaigns (all in the world of DnD).

Arman aspires to lead his own lab in a humble and progressive University.
