An old trapper told me ‘It takes three years to learn to catch a fox. Three years, girlie.’
That was back in 2012. As I found out, he was pretty much right.
I’m a Research Fellow with the Quantitative and Applied Ecology group (QAECO) at the University of Melbourne. Working with Prof. Brendan Wintle, I use individual-based models and field experiments to investigate how fire and invasive predator management affect threatened native mammals. I currently supervise three awesome students: Matt Rees, Zoi Banikos and Jessie Moyses.
I completed my PhD in 2016 on Interactions between Invasive Predators, Native Mammals and Fire in a Forest Ecosystem with the Fire Ecology and Biodiversity research group at the University of Melbourne.
