I am a Research Fellow working from my home in north Queensland on several projects related to the conservation of Australian birds.  I also maintain a range of other research interests within the field of wildlife ecology including the study of plants and insects.  Applications include conservation biology, management, autecology, community ecology, genetics and biogeography.  I am a subject editor for the journal Biotropica.

My MSc was an analysis of the historic record of seed-eating birds in northern Australia, in which I provided the most tangible evidence that this species-rich bird assemblage has suffered a major and generally adverse transformation under European settlement. 

My PhD was on the ecology of the Top End Bamboo (Bambusa arnhemica) including a remarkable opportunity to investigate the bizarre phenomenon of waves of mass flowering and die-off that are a feature of many bamboos.  The life history of bamboos remains a special interest. 

Though currently based on the Atherton Tableland in north Queensland, I lived and worked in the Top End of the Northern Territory for 18 years and before that in south-eastern Australia.  I have also explored landscapes, vegetation and wildlife in central and South America, mainland south-east Asia, Timor-Leste (East Timor) and a little in Europe.
