I am an Associate Professor of Conservation Science at Deakin University, in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences, and a member of the Centre for Integrative Ecology.

My group website, Conservation Science at Deakin, and research interests can be found here.

My research focusses on solving problems in biodiversity conservation. My current research interests include measuring change in biodiversity, predicting the impacts of change, and making conservation decisions. I also work on ecosystem risk assessment, mainly with the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems. For more detail, see more on my research group’s page.

Most of my research is quantitative and usually involves modelling of some description. If you are interested in working with me as a postdoc or PhD student, please contact me.

I am also very interested in gender equity in science, and more broadly, as you can see from some of my blog posts (e.g., here, here and here).

From 2012 until Feb 2015, I was a Centenary Research Fellow at The University of Melbourne, in the Quantitative & Applied Ecology group (QAECO). Before that, I was a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow at Imperial College London, working with E.J. Milner-Gulland and her group (2007-2012), and a postdoc in the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University, working with David Wilcove (2006-2007). See my CV for more details.
