She works on threatened species conservation on Australian islands. Her research focuses on Antarctic protected areas, Antarctic biosecurity, species interactions and investigating how invasive species influence ecosystem function. Justine is interested in the role of invasive vertebrates as drivers of ecosystem change over time, space and management regimes. She is interested in ways of dealing with uncertainty in large scale eradication attempts. Justine has been working in polar research for over 22 years.
