Senior lecturer, University of Sydney

I am a Senior Lecturer at The University of Sydney. I hold a courtesy faculty position within the Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society at Oregon State University, and an Affiliate Assistant Professorship within the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences at The University of Washington.

My research addresses how species respond to human-induced changes to the landscape. I am particularly interested in how humans, predators and scavengers shape and drive ecosystem processes.

In 2018 I established the Global Ecology Lab at The University of Sydney.
