Primary research group: 
Savanna Wildlife Research and Conservation Management
B.Sc. (Ag. & Env. Sc) Honours, Environmental Biology - Wildlife Biology, McGill University, Montreal, Canada


I am a PhD candidate studying the movements, habitat use and diet of the Magpie Goose (Anseranas semipalmata) on mango orchards of the Darwin agricultural region. Ultimately, I want my research findings to be used for developing long-term management strategies for Magpie Geese in agricultural areas that are sustainable into the future.

Before moving to Australia, I completed a Bachelor of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at McGill University, Montreal, Canada, where I majored in Wildlife Biology. For my Honours research, I examined male dominance hierarchy and hormone correlates in red colobus monkeys in Kibale National Park, Uganda (Supervisors: V.A.M. Schoof & C.A. Chapman).

I have broad research interests in animal behaviour, wildlife management and conservation, and applied ecology in the tropics, with a particular concern for public outreach and scientific communication. For my PhD research, I am collaborating with multiple end-users including farmers, industry partners, government, hunting groups, and conservation agencies. I am especially attracted by RIEL’s multidisciplinary and applied approaches, given that livelihoods and social contexts are integral to successful wildlife and natural resource management.
