Lecturer, Environmental Science, Murdoch University

My interests are broad but are unified by an interest in doing ecological research with a strong applied angle. Good examples include work on assessing bushfire threat and impact of shortened fire intervals in Western Australia or examining impacts of high-severity fire and post-fire management on forest development and wildlife in Western North America. My work also includes investigation of the impacts of urbanisation on Mediterranean woodlands and methods, such as topsoil transfer, to restore some level of biodiversity to degraded urban reserves.
