Biographical details

I have worked for the Desert Ecology Research Group, School of Biological Sciences at the University of Sydney, for the past 10 years. My research interests include population dynamics, climate, fire ecology and species interactions.

Currently, I am a doctoral student and my project investigates the ecological interactions through-out the food chain in arid Australia. I am particularly interested in how environmental factors, such as rainfall and wildfire, and predator-prey relationships influence these interactions.
