I worked for a decade as a ranger, planner, forest scientist and fire fighter for several land management agencies before completing a PhD at The Australian National University in 1999.

I then held research positions with CSIRO and the New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service before taking up my current position at The Australian National University where I research and teach in the field of biodiversity conservation and environmental impact assessment.

My current research interests are in the areas of environmental impact assessment, land management practices that protect houses during bushfires and cost-effective ecological restoration.
