I enjoy being outside in nature and I use my research skills to help conserve the natural heritage that I love so much. Spatial ecology is my primary research focus. In particular, I am interested in how the environment and competitive interactions affect the distribution of wildlife, and how this influences the exposure of wildlife to threats. My research has seen me use a wide array of techniques to understand the various study systems I have worked in including GPS telemetry, unmanned aerial vehicles (drones), habitat suitability modelling, spatial prioritisation tools, stable isotope analysis, trace metal analysis using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, as well as traditional observational methods such as point counts and line transects on land and at-sea.
