Lecturer in Animal Ecology, University of Wollongong

My research spans the fields of disease ecology and migration biology. I try to figure out how parasites, pathogens, and symbionts are transmitted and maintained, what impact they have on animal performance, how environmental disturbance alters animal movements, and the ecological consequences of these changed movement patterns.
