I'm an Associate Professor at the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (Western Sydney University), where I lead the “Lab of Animal Ecology”.
I'm also President of the Australasian Bat Society, a nonprofit organisation whose aim is to promote the conservation and study of bats in Australasia; and I'm co-founder of 'BATsLAB', a recent joint initiative to create a much-needed primary academic destination for bat research in Australia.
My research covers a range of subjects in whole organism biology, but focuses on evolutionary ecology, which is concerned with the ways organisms respond adaptively to changes in their social, ecological, and physical environment. I have parallel interests in conservation and climate change biology, and particularly in the areas of endangered species biology, human-wildlife conflict, impacts of extreme events, and conservation planning.
