Person details


Current activities

Lincoln is a PhD student currently researching on the impact of traditional boat mooring in coastal waterways on the benthic habitat, and the significance of environmental sensitive mooring alternatives. Furthermore, his research will provide insight into whether ES-mooring usage can be a viable conservation strategy for the spotted handfish (Brachionichthys hirsutus) populations.


Lincoln came to Tasmania in 2012 for his tertiary education and graduated from UTAS in 2015. His Honours research focused on establishing a population baseline for the spotted handfish in the Derwent Estuary, as well as studying their habitat preferences and the overall species-habitat relationship. Since then, he has been actively working on the spotted handfish conservation project till present.
