Research interests

I have a very broad interest in ecology, having worked on projects related to invasive species ecology, anuran acoustic biology and the impacts of cattle grazing on biodiversity, all within northern Queensland, Australia. I am currently involved in a project studying the ecological and evolutionary impact of extreme temperature events on rainforest Drosophila communities, alongside Postdoctoral Researcher Dr. Jinlin Chen, under the supervision of Professor Owen Lewis.
