General Responsibilities

Research Technician with the CRC for Sustainable Forest Landscapes, with particular focus on browsing mammal damage to seedlings. This covers aspects of herbivore feeding preferences and plant chemical ecology. In conjunction with Dr Julianne O'Reilly-Wapstra and Prof Brad Potts, current research is into the genetic and chemical basis of eucalypt resistance to browsing.
