Researcher biography

My research interests falls within the field of animal ecology: how animal interact with the environment and with each other. I have worked in a diverse range of environments (terrestrial, coastal and marine) gathering physiological, behavioural and population data across a broad range of taxa. I am particularly interested in how animal location data (i.e. biotelemetry, species presence or species abundance) may be used in combination with remote sensing data to test hypotheses and make predictions regarding individual- and population-level responses to environmental change. I am currently overseeing a long-term tracking study investigating the movement patterns of large riverine predators (estuarine crocodiles, river sharks, sawfish, freshwater rays and barramundi) in Northern Queensland.
