I am reviewing the status of Australia's tropical inshore dolphins under NESP Theme A, as well as working on a number of manuscripts around: (i) the behavioural ecology and influence of global change on Shark Bay's Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin population; and (ii) the impact of the incidental capture of megafauna in fisheries.
I am a conservation biologist at heart. I study the behavioural ecology of coastal dolphins as a Principal Investigator with Shark Bay Dolphin Research (www.sharkbaydolphins.org), as well as wildlife-human interactions through fisheries, tourism and the influence of climate breakdown. I'm an avid field biologist, drone pilot and photographer, and dogs are most definitely the best people.
