Research interests

Dr Newsome’s research addresses how species respond to human-induced changes to the landscape. He is particularly interested in how humans and top predators shape and drive ecosystem processes.

His doctoral research focused on the ecology and behaviour of the dingo in theTanami Desert of central Australia. As a Fulbright Postdoctoral Scholar he investigated the ecological role of grey wolves and other large carnivores.

Dr Newsome currently co-leads studies assessing (i) how mountain lions and other species are responding to the return of grey wolves in Washington State USA, (ii) the ecological role of carrion in Australia, (iii) human-carnivore conflicts globally, and (iv) how to resolve the global extinction crisis.

In 2018 Dr Newsome established the Global Ecology Labat The University of Sydney.
