Australian Registry of Wildlife Health - Taronga Conservation Society Australia, University of Sydney

I am a veterinary scientist with a passion for wildlife health, welfare and conservation.

My research focuses on the application of an ecological approach to identify and understand pathogens at the interface of animal, human and environmental health.

Investigations into wildlife disease outbreaks and population declines often transform into collaborative research leading to the characterisation and enhanced understanding of emerging pathogens.

I lead the Australian Registry of Wildlife Health, a conservation research program of Taronga Conservation Society Australia, and am an academic affiliate at the University of Sydney.
