PhD Candidate, James Cook University

I am a current Marine Ecology PhD student at James Cook University, Cairns Campus. My current research is looking into the role of biotic dispersal of tropical seagrasses, concentrating on marine mega-herbivores (dugong and green sea turtles). My research is undertaken within the Great Barrier Reef region.
I also work with the Seagrass Team at TropWATER JCU, assisting with seagrass monitoring at ports along the Queensland coast and within the Torres Strait.
