I am a researcher in the field of biosecurity, and am interested in studies ranging from species to ecosystem levels. I work with both flora and fauna subjects, and have a strong passion for conservation, sustainability and education.
My academic background started with an Honours in Biology Education and moved to a Master’s Degree in Plant Ecology, and was further developed with a PhD in Plant Physiological Ecology. I then worked in consultancies in Western Australia doing baseline studies, targeted searches and vegetation monitoring for a few years. This led me to the biosecurity realm with mapping and planning the control of non-indigenous species.
After my experience with industry partners, I have returned to academia as a Research Fellow where I can pair my interests in research and education, and hopefully create some positive change in conservation areas, agricultural systems and with the supervision of graduate students and future researchers.
