I am an Associate Professor with the School of Earth, Atmospheric and Life Sciences at the University of Wollongong. I undertake coastal research with a particular emphasis of coastal climate change vulnerability and adaptation.
My research background is in coastal wetland geomorphology and ecology, with a particular focus on the vulnerability of mangrove and saltmarsh to sea-level rise. I have also contributed to research on climate change vulnerability and adaptation of freshwater wetlands in the Murray-Darling Basin. I am particularly passionate about the conservation of wetlands for the maintenance of ecosystem services.
