I'm a conservation biologist and ecologist, passionate about protecting Australia's unique flora and fauna. I finished my PhD in 2019 from the University of Melbourne, and have since been working as a Threatened Species Policy Officer for the Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.
My PhD research focused on developing a novel conservation strategy for endangered northern quolls - essentially trying to help them evolve quickly to stop eating poisonous cane toads.
In my current role, I help develop tools and strategies to promote evidence-based decision making for threatened species. I’ve had the opportunity to work on a range of endangered species' projects in Victoria and contribute to rapid impact assessments and statewide conservation planning after devastating the 2019/2020 bushfires.
