Prior to starting my PhD, I graduated a Bachelor of Applied Science from The University of Queensland in 2012 and received first-class honours for my project on urban restoration and bird diversity in South-east Queensland within the Possingham Lab through CEED in 2014. I have since gained experience in environmental consultancy for urban and infrastructure development and conservation research projects, for Universities and non-government organisations (IUCN) on projects concerning climate change, invasive species, avian ecology and protected areas. Through this, I developed skills in conducting terrestrial vertebrate fauna surveys predominantly in Australia but also in Peru using both trapping and observational methods utilising visuals, calls and traces for all taxa. Throughout my past roles, I have established a strong foundation in conducting desktop research, data collection, data compilation and data analysis using a variety of sources and programs.

My PhD focuses on issues around private land conservation particularly, 1) what is the role of private land conservation 2) how effective is private land conservation, and 3) who engages in private land conservation. All to better inform how to increase future policy adoption and engagement, and to promote effective conservation on private lands.
