Personal profile


I am a conservation biologist who uses genetic and field based techniques to evaluate animal dispersal in natural systems and to assess the impacts of human activities. I have experience with a diverse range of vertebrate and invertebrate organisms, in a range of environments, and strive to answer questions that meet the needs of conservation managers. I’m the Director of the Masters of Conservation Biology program at Macquarie University.  I lead the Conservation Genetics Laboratory and have supervised 17 postgraduate students to completion since 2014.
