Projects per year
I am a Research Associate based at the Sydney Institute of Marine Science and Adjunct Fellow at Macquarie University with broad interests in marine ecology, animal biotelemetry, oceanography, biodiversity and conservation issues associated with human activities (e.g. fisheries, climate change, anthropogenic disturbance).
I have a particular research focus on monitoring populations and movements of sharks, batoid rays, gamefish and other marine megafauna, with expertise in large dataset management, analysis of spatial, presence-absence and time-series datasets, and data visualization using R and GIS.
My current research explores the following themes through various active collaborations, grants and student supervision:
- Continental-scale tracking of movements of Australian marine species to examine population structure and climate change impacts as part of Australia's Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS, www.imos.org);
- Population and movement ecology of manta and devil rays in Australia and globally;
- Sighting trends and foraging ecology of rare, endemic or threatened pelagic species;
- Diversity and use of Marine Protected Areas and pelagic waters by large marine vertebrates via environmental DNA metabarcoding;
- Novel methods for assessing the performance of animal telemetry equipment.
