PhD candidate, Desert Ecology Research Group, University of Sydney

My doctoral research investigates the impact of a large-scale ecosystem driver (predation) on behaviour and habitat use in different reptiles. I'm also interested in the combined effects of fire, rain and predation on prey dynamics.

In past research I assessed the effectiveness of several trapping techniques of a suite of reptiles for management purposes.

My research interests include predator-prey interactions, population dynamics, trophic cascades and fire ecology
