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.

If you’d like to learn more about my research, would like a copy of a paper, or are interested in collaborating, please contact me at:
