I have a broad interest in ecology and its application to the management and restoration of native ecosystems. My research is grounded in theory but driven by an interest in developing practical outcomes for restoration in our rapidly changing world. I use an experimental and conceptual approach to research that is informed by my observations of what occurs in nature.
I lead the Terrestrial Ecology Research Group at Murdoch University with Dr Joe Fontaine. The group includes ~20 PhD students and ~6 honours students.
