Biography

 I completed my PhD at Curtin university in 2019, which focused on seed survival and recruitment in fire prone ecosystems. I work closely with conservation agencies to ensure my research is applicable and practical.

My research interests are

  • Disturbance ecology, including weed invasion and fire - and the combined effect of fire and weed invasion.
  • Seed and plant trait interactions
  • Fire ecology and the effects of changes to fire regime
  • Soil...view more

My research interests are

  • Disturbance ecology, including weed invasion and fire - and the combined effect of fire and weed invasion.
  • Seed and plant trait interactions
  • Fire ecology and the effects of changes to fire regime
  • Soil dynamics during fire and the utilization of new technology to increase our ability to capture variability within fires.
