Large areas of Australia are experiencing sustained anthropogenic pressure, environmental degradation and biodiversity loss. I am passionate about protecting our ecosystems and biodiversity through the use of interdisciplinary and innovative technological approaches in ecological research. I have a particular interest in using ecoacoustic innovations to monitor changes in ecosystem health and impacts on biodiversity.

I am a level 3 Mentoring Postgraduate Supervisor and current student projects in my research group include:

  • Evolution of intra and intersexual signalling in two frog species, Litoria wilcoxii and Litoria jungguy
  • Acoustic signalling and subspecies divergence in two Australasian treecreeper species (Climacteris picumnus and Cormobates leucophaea).
  • Evaluation of faunal biodiversity in urban restoration
  • Conservation biology of threatened native olives (genus Notelaea) in southern Queensland
  • Using ecoacoustic monitoring to monitor biodiversity and guide urban development in peri-urban settings
  • An examination of the influence of landscape structure on insectivorous bats and birds in cotton
