Primary research group: 
Savanna Wildlife Research and Conservation Management
Bachelor of Environmental Science (Wildlife and Conservation Ecology) (Hons). Thesis Title 'The effects of changing fire regimes and climate on small mammals in the Grampian National Park'.


After completing my Honours at Deakin University I've recently commenced my PhD investigating how changing fire regimes influence the abudance and diversity of tree hollows and whether arboreal mammals in northern tropical savannas are crictically limited by the availability of these hollows. My ecological interests are conservation biology and providing research that assists for the future management of threatened species in Australia.
