I work on the ecology, behaviour and conservation of mammals. My main interests focus around the different strategies adopted by males and females, and the impacts that these have on behaviour, ecology and social structure. This has resulted in three main current themes: a) Parental investment strategies, including sex allocation b) Impact of disease and predation on social ecology c) Impact of management strategies on behaviour and ecology.
These and other potential projects are available in 2011
Originally from New Zealand, I joined the School of Zoology in 2010 from the University of Pretoria in South Africa where I was the Director of the Mammal Research Institute. After completing my PhD at Massey University in New Zealand, I conducted postdoctoral fellowships in Australia and South Africa, and then worked for several years at the University of Nevada, Reno.
