I have always been inspired, intrigued and fascinated with this planet and the diversity of life which inhabits it. This led me on a path of completing an undergraduate degree in science, followed by a range of jobs in the Queensland State and Local governments which aimed to reduce the environmental impacts of people on nature. I then decided to return to university and scientific investigation in 2013 and began my Masters by Reseach which ultimately metamorphosed into a PhD.
Topics I have researched for my PhD and other projects include:
- community ecology of floating pumice rafts
- biodiversity, regeneration and recruitment in remnant reserves of a critically endangered tree: Melaleuca irbyana
