I am a PhD student studying the ecology of the northern 'Lambalk' glider (Petaurus breviceps ariel) in northern Australia. My project will provide an exciting opportunity to identify and describe a new species and assess the conservation status of arboreal mammals in northern Australia. I am looking forward to working in some of the Territory’s most scenic areas, including Kakadu national park and the Cobourg peninsular.

Prior to this opportunity, I completed a Bachelor of Science with Honours at the University of Tasmania in 2014. For my honours project I was lucky enough to be based in South Australia’s iconic Flinders Ranges National Park. I investigated the effectiveness and implications of management strategies targeting two of the biggest threats to Australian fauna; the red fox and the feral cat.

I have a strong interest in conservation ecology and wildlife management. After a five-year absence while completing my undergraduate degree, I am enjoying living back in Darwin and look forward to working towards describing and mitigating the threats our native fauna are currently facing in northern Australia.
