Additional Information

I have a strong background in threatened species and environmental management, gained through extensive work in both government and the private sector. This has included on-ground fieldwork and the development of environmental policy and legislation, including work with threatened/endangered fauna, World Heritage Area management, forestry and agricultural land clearing practices, private land reservation and incentive programs, water conservation, and the development of environmental solutions with industry, community groups and land owners.

I chair the National Burrowing Crayfish Recovery Team, and act as a guest lecturer at the University of Tasmania and in industry planning and training schemes.

I am currently developing the BookEnd Trust, a new scholarship program designed to promote good environmental management and to inspire future students with the opportunities this work provides.

Research Interests
  • Developing practical balances between environmental management and development
  • Threatened species management systems
  • Spiders and cave fauna
  • Freshwater crayfish
