About me

matt_15-I am an ecologist aiming to help conserve threatened species.

My research generally centres around the impact and management of invasive animals. It’s a complex issue which I find inherently fascinating and frustrating.

I also find myself preoccupied by the ways  we survey wildlife and make sense of this data.  What stories do different population indexes tell us and how might individual behaviour and species’ interactions skew these?

I am currently torturing myself via a PhD with the Quantitative and Applied Ecology group at the University of Melbourne, supervised by Bronwyn Hradsky, Brendan Wintle, and Alan Robley.
