Research Fellow, University of Adelaide

I am an ecologist with a particular focus on marine and freshwater systems.

I am interested in looking at how humans are changing the environment and the capacity of this environment to resist or cope with change. I have a predilection for weedy species of the sea: fast-paced, adaptable organisms (like squid) that may be thriving in the face of all this change. Ultimately, I want to learn what our future oceans and rivers, and their wealth of natural resources we are reliant upon, will look like.

I am also actively researching ways to improve scientific writing to facilitate better transfer of knowledge among scientists and the broader community.

I am a keen proponent of scicomm and always interested in new ways of getting science out there to the outside world
