My background in both conservation science and management has shaped my focus on how to manage conservation effectively and how to improve the impact of conservation interventions. One aspect of my work includes the interfaces between science, field research and project management. A second area examines how conservation management can be improved and sustained.
My scientific interests centre on the genetics of small populations and its effects on survival, diversity and disease resistance.
I am also interested in the impact of conservation genetics on management strategies for conserving and sustaining populations with a particular interest in predators.
