Katherine Berthon

PhD Candidate, RMIT University

Katie is a PhD candidate investigating drivers of biodiversity change and function in urban landscapes. Her passion for conservation biology and curiosity for understanding natural phenomena has led to a diverse research background in animal behaviour, spatial analysis, invasion biology and ecological theory. During her candidature she will investigate how plant choice, local environment and landscape context influence colonisation and persistence of animals in cities, with the aim of informing design guidelines for urban green spaces.
