I specialise in mammalian conservation biology and evolutionary ecology, with a particular focus on carnivores (Tasmanian devils and quolls). Since gaining my PhD in this area in 1996, I have completed postdoctoral research at Tel Aviv University (Israel), University of Queensland, and the Australian National University. I am also employed as Scientific Advisor to the Save the Tasmanian Devil Program.
My current focus is on three urgent and related conservation issues:
My research provides the scientific grounding for adaptive management as implemented in state government agencies: The Save the Tasmanian Devil Program, the Threatened Species Unit, Forest Practices Authority or Forestry Tasmania. My research group uses a combination of field-based ecological and behavioural approaches, including non-invasive survey and molecular techniques.
