Senior research fellow, RMIT University

I originally studied physics completing a PhD in particle physics at the University of Melbourne. My research focuses on developing quantitative and qualitative approaches for understanding the impacts of environmental policies and programs on biodiversity values in the landscape. I have has undertaken extensive research on biodiversity offsetting, conservation planning, spatial prioritization and conservation on private land as well the application of machine learning approaches to support conservation and land-use policy.
