I've been involved with wildlife management and research since I was a child, and have been employed in the private and public sectors primarily as a dingo ecologist, conservationist and manager for over 12 years. I am a Vice-chancellors Research Fellow at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ), an adjunct ecology lecturer with the University of Queensland (UQ), and am the Vice-president of the Australasian Wildlife Management Society (AWMS). I investigate practical solutions to a variety of complex wildlife management problems around Australia and internationally, often in livestock grazing systems and peri-urban areas.
Current research areas include:
Ecology and management of dingoes in urban areas
Ecology of watermice in mangrove communities
Ecology and management of dingoes on Fraser Island
Vertebrate biocontrol of feral goats on tropical offshore islands
Eradication of vertebrate pests and reintroduction of threatened fauna on conservation-fenced livestock production lands
Ecology and management of stray dogs and their diseases in rural and remote indigenous communities across Australia and southeast Asia
I have a keen interest in dingoes generally, and have published a wide variety of journal articles, book chapters, technical reports and education materials on dingo conservation, control and management.
