Research Fellow, Global Studies, Social Science & Planning, RMIT University

I originally studied physics completing a PhD in particle physics at the University of Melbourne. Since then I've become interested in modelling and simulation approaches to address interdisciplinary problems in conservation science. This first led me to focus on the application of systematic conservation planning to peri-urban areas. More recently I have been broadening my research focus to develop modelling approaches for understanding the impacts of environmental policies on biodiversity values in the landscape.
