About me


I am an ecologist aiming to help conserve threatened species. My research generally centres around:

(i) the ecology of predators

(ii) the management of invasive animals

(iii) how species’ interactions and behaviour impacts monitoring methods

I am currently a PhD candidate with the Quantitative and Applied Ecology group at the University of Melbourne. For my thesis, I am researching how controlling foxes impacts feral cats & native mammals in mesic forests. I am supervised by Brendan Wintle, Bronwyn Hradsky and Alan Robley.

You can follow me on twitter: @Matt_W_Rees, and check out the #foxcontrolpatrol hashtag to keep up to date with the work of our teams work.
