I apply ecological theory with good doses of field work to seek solutions to the challenges of conserving biodiversity.
I am a Professor of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation at Deakin University.
My research spans a diverse range of fields of study; including behavioural, community and evolutionary ecology, conservation biology, landscape ecology and wildlife management, with a particular focus on Australia’s native mammals.
I have contributed to hundreds of scientific papers over a career spanning more than 20 years.
I am an associate editor of the journal Austral Ecology.
I dedicate considerable time to science communication and public outreach, and am a regular contributor to The Conversation.
