Postdoctoral research fellow, The University of Queensland

My PhD with Green Fire Science at the University of Queensland focussed on assessing the state of intact or under-developed landscapes and how to plan for their conservation considering competing objectives. I’ve been lucky to work on several conservation and planning projects globally and across Australia, Central and South America, and Africa with various conservation groups including the Wildlife Conservation Society, The Nature Conservancy, and the International Institute for Sustainability Australia. I am now working as a postdoctoral researcher with the Sustainable Landscapes Group at the University of Queensland focusing on private land conservation, modelling and improving decision making considering ecosystem service flows.
