Lecturer, UNSW

My research interests span applied animal behaviour, communication, and movement ecology. My current focus is in understanding and applying behavioural ecology to conservation management problems, particularly in resolving human-wildlife conflicts. I have a conjoint position with UNSW in the Centre for Ecosystem Science, and Taronga Conservation Society Australia, and also work with the Botswana Predator Conservation Trust.
